You are absolutely right about the lack of website and documentation.
Unfortunately, I don't have much spare-time right now...
However, there *is* some documentation in the help-section of the app  

Lilith was formerly called Lumberjack but the name was already taken  
by another logging-related project on sourceforge so I decided to  
rename it.

All in all, it's a replacement for Chainsaw.
It does have it's own appenders which include the ability to send the  
same (optionally GZIPed) event to multiple recipients, an appender- 
wide application id (so it's possible to identify the application  
sending the event, in case there are more than one application running  
on the same host) and supports parameters with exceptions.
I have not updated the parameter handling code to reflect Cekis latest  
changes, yet.

To use my appender, simply add the following dependency to your maven  
pom file:

and the following too logback.xml:
<appender name="multiplex"  
   <Compressing>true</Compressing> <!-- will automatically use correct  
default port -->

You could also, optionally, specify an application id using
<ApplicationId>Your identifier</ApplicationId>
This has proved to be quite helpful.

Hope this helps.
