The problem really isn't with the logger, but with the documentation (and I'm including article here on CodePRoject in that).

For log4net (and for most other loggers, and most add-in libraries in general for that matter), there are:
- things you do every time you want to log something.
- things you do once for every class which logs something.
- things you do once for each application which logs something.
- things you do once in your lifetime.

To understand how you use the logger, they should be explained in that order -- the thing you do the most taught first and with the most text.

However, most go with a chronologic order -- exactly the reverse -- so you are bogged down with pages & pages of "configuration" documentation --- which in a real application will result one line of code.
Truth,

James
