The Wiki is publicly writable and I've had minimal personal  
involvement other than the occasional removal of defacement.  After  
the upcoming log4cxx 0.10.0 release, it would be good to go through  
the Wiki and flag articles that might be outdated.

log4cxx has minimal independent documentation since it attempts to  
mimic log4j.  Unfortunately, log4j also has a gap between the freely  
available intro and the freely available source code.  There are two  
commercial log4j books but they are not products of the Apache  
Software Foundation.  The priority on log4j would be to move on the  
log4j 2.0 and document it during development instead of documenting  
log4j 1.2 5 years or so after initial release.

nagoya should be replaced by issues when it refers to JIRA.  Please  
feel free to change those on the Wiki.
