Looking for the org.apache.log package

I am studying the Hibernate object database system as a individual course project and am trying to build a Hibernate system using Eclipse. I am fine until I build with Ant. Through days of trench warfare, I have resolved most of the compiler errors (all missing libraries of some kind) but I can not find the org.apache.log package. I have search though several Apache projects (Avalon, Excalibur, Logging, etc.) and I just can not find this package. It seems that with the build.xml file that I have (I am doing the tutorial at: that it wants the source files (for other problems I had the appropriate jar files referenced but Ant did not seem to pick them up but was happy with the sources).

This is most likely a brain-dead question but it is killing me!

Here I am answering my own question again but hopefully this will help someone in the same situation. The org.apache.log package is in the Excalibur project but not in the current Excalibur distribution. You have to go to: to get it. You have to click on the "Master Distribution Directory" link in the text to get to what seems to be the complete list of projects including the ones inherited from the Avalon project.
I agree. Here's the link:
