Thanks for the heads up.

I have to admit that given the lack of anything at all happening with the
log4cpp packages (and, apparently, with upstream), I'm increasingly
tempted to just package log4shib and switch all the Shibboleth packages
over to it.  I'm sure that would make you more comfortable as well.

I should probably bring that up in debian-devel first because of the code
duplication.  I'm sure someone will ask if there's any way of merging the
projects; I assume that's pretty much at the same spot it was several
years ago, where they seemed basically uninterested in the issues you were

(Given the lack of a new release, I wonder if log4cpp is really
effectively orphaned.)
