We've recently switched to Log4J2 on one of the big projects that I am doing. Now we need to patch a few things for our work in a way that is likely not going to be accepted back to Log4J. Specifically we want to short-circuit Log4jLogEvent.getSource to return a fixed String. We are using AsynchAppender and 'Log4jLogEvent.getSource' is a noticeable performance bottleneck for us, and we currently don't see a better way around it (ok, to be completely honest, we just don't have the cycles to refactor Log4J2 properly). So the idea was to keep a GitHub fork and merge periodically with the master copy.
Any thoughts/comments on exposing "2" on GitHub.
As an Apache member I can probably ping infra myself. But wanted to talk to the 'logging' community first.
