Fwd: Moving log4net-logviewer to apache

Dominik Psenner
Hi fellows!

This is a call for opinions.

What does the community think should happen? Are there people out there who use log4net-logviewer or any of its binaries?

Cheers,
Dominik

The main benefit of using log4net-logviewer is to use the logparsing abilities to be able to aggregate and do log statistics from the raw logs.

The GUI and CLI bits can potentially be removed, since there are already chainsaw and log2console.

According to the readme this is a alternative to log2console and chainsaw. I don't like it to have multiple tools that do the same thing. Would you please explain the main differences between the projects?

Further I see no personal interest to take over the maintenance of more projects as that would definitely exceed the spare time I have available. Therefore it would be great if we could merge the communities to gain a larger community to maintain all of these projects.
