      Description

      RewriteAppender and RewritePolicy in log4j 1.2 give appender writers the ability to change events before they are sent to appenders. Two examples: adding properties to all events using PropertyRewritePolicy, and X-ing out passwords and sensitive text, logger names truncating stack traces because of sensitive class information.
