      Description

      Automatic reconfiguration does not work with xinclude/xml.

      Modifying xinclude files is not detected as a file change on on the main config file and as such it is not reconfigured when updates are made to files included with xinclude (ie. log4j2-appenders.xml).

      Desired functionality would be to also listen for changes of files that are included by main configuration file as well and update the configuration as needed.

      An alternative would be to allow user to specify additional files to monitor for changes.
