A lot of OSS projects nowadays support Commons Logging instead of Log4J
directly (e.g. Hibernate). So, there's a fat chance you allready have that
dependency. For Maverick users who want to use JDK logging or some other
mechanism they allready have a dependency on, it could mean one dependency
less.

I don't have an opinion either way, and no objections to those who are in
favor of the switch... but I guess I'm not really clear on how switching to
commons-logging helps the jar file explosion.  As I see it:

Current: log4j.jar
Proposal: commons-logging.jar + log4j.jar -- or -- commons-logging.jar +
(JDK logging)

So as I see it, it's 1 jar (current) vs. 1 or 2 jars (proposal).

What am I missing here?

That's what I proposed about a year ago, and I still am for replacing Log4J
by Commons Logging.

What is everyone's opinion on changing maverick to use the Apache
Commons logging API instead of hardcoding a dependency on log4j. My
reason for wanting this would be to cut down on the large number of jar
files my project is accumulating.. I'd like to use java.util.logging as
much as possible. This would also make maverick even more flexible..
