Subject Re: [DRAFT] Board Report for December 2014 - please review
Date Mon, 08 Dec 2014 18:40:46 GMT
I signed the ripple report brought in today and wrote a small log4cxx
report myself. I consider this valid as consider myself part of the
log4cxx community.

I hope this is acceptable, since the podling deadline was before a few
days. Please let me know if not and I will revert

Thanks!
