The current XML configuration format is not conducive to validation.   
The effort was to define a new configuration format that was  
documented, conducive to validation by XML Schema and, to some  
degree, XML DTD, and avoided using log4j class names for generic  
concepts.  See http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/logging/sandbox/ 
strictxml/STATUS for more detail.

That is the best resource available in my opinion.  log4cxx attempts  
to mimic log4j to minimize surprise and documentation needs, so any  
good log4j documentation should be useful in understanding log4cxx.   
I think that everybody would like there to be better documentation  
and we'd be open if somebody wants to take it on.
