The file /tmp/sessionlog used by C4::Auth seems like an untracked logfile in a strange non-standard location.

16:46:56 <slef> should /tmp/sessionlog be replaced by C4::Log calls?
16:47:46 <gmcharlt> slef: I think /tmp/sessionlog should be replaced, yes
16:48:06 <slef> by C4::Log calls or otherwise?
16:48:27 <gmcharlt> C4::Log or perhaps the Log4Perl proposed by acmoore a while
16:48:46 <gmcharlt> my reservation about C4::Log is if we start logging all sessions in action_logs
16:48:54 <slef> I don't recall that proposal. Looking for URL
16:49:08 <gmcharlt> we really ought to write a purge job for that table
16:50:14 <slef> http://www.nabble.com/-RFC--Using-Log4perl-to-extend-and-improve-logging-and-debugging-td19227795.html
16:50:23 <gmcharlt> slef: with proposed patch at http://lists.koha.org/pipermail/koha-patches/2008-September/001689.html
17:29:08 <slef> gmcharlt: is Perl4Log a 3.2 goal or later?
17:29:33 <gmcharlt> slef: getting it added is reasonable for 3.2
17:29:51 <gmcharlt> getting all logging handled by it is probably post 3.2
17:30:07 <bigbrovar> thanks guys   me = very happy now =))
17:30:09 <slef> and sessionlog in particular?
17:30:09 <gmcharlt> do you have any opinion on the framework?
17:30:24 <gmcharlt> getting it to handle sessionlog would be quick
17:30:26 <gmcharlt> so yes
17:30:27 <slef> not yet but anything is better than open >>
17:30:39 <slef> filing bug

Is this something we are aiming for?
