Appenders for Apache log4net

RemoteSyslogSSLAppender and RemoteSyslogAsyncSSLAppender: Appenders specifically to allow remote SSL logging to a syslog running on a Synology NAS. This should work with any syslog conforming to the BSD specification.

EncryptedForwardingAppender: ForwardingAppender to allow encryption of logged messages (both the message text and exception text).  Current implementation uses PGP/GPG encryption.

Reference project on GitHub for SampleApp to write logs for these appenders as well as a sample application for reading an encrypted file log.

Use of this software is free.
