CLONED from SOLR-12008 since 12008 couldn't be closed.
As part of SOLR-11934 I started looking at log4j.properties files. Waaay back in 2015, the %C in "/solr/server/resources/log4j.properties" was changed to use %c, but the file in "solr/example/resources/log4j.properties" was not changed. That got me to looking around and there are a bunch of log4j.properties files:
Why do we have so many? After the log4j2 ticket gets checked in (
SOLR-7887) I propose the logging configuration files get consolidated. The question is "how far"?
I at least want to get rid of the one in solr/example, users should use the one in server/resources. Having to maintain these two separately is asking for trouble.
Mark Miller Do you have any wisdom on the properties file in server/scripts/cloud-scripts?
Anyone else who has a clue about why the other properties files were created, especially the ones in contrib?
And what about all the ones in various test-files directories? People didn't create them for no reason, and I don't want to rediscover that it's a real pain to try to re-use the one in server/resources for instance.
