Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Can SLF4J be made the official logging API for Eclipse projects?


Looking at this:

The platform does include that in it's repo:

That's because this requires it:;_org.slf4j.api_[1.7.2.v20121108-1250,1.7.2.v20121108-1250]

But I don't think that feature is contributed to the train, so maybe the following is misleading to indicate that it does:

There are two versions of this in the latest train repository:

Oddly the one with the higher version number has the older version quality date.

Managing to get this down to one consistent version will likely be as challenging as getting anything to be consistent on the train.

If it's standard, surely the platform should redistribute so that a copy can be found in e.g. ?

There is no SLF4J there. There is no log4j either. Where does log4j come form? It turns out that EGit redistributes both log4j and SLF4J. Very helpful, but surely not right?

What is the preferred policy for redistribution of SLF4J? Does every project need to redistribute it itself to avoid piggy-backing on EGit or mandating that users manually add Orbit to their Install sites?
