We don’t have plans to patch Log4J in previous releases of WildFly.

That's not what I meant. I'm not asking for Log4J to be patched. I was asking for the wildfly module file in wildfly 23.0.2 that refers to log4j version 2.14.0 to refer to 2.17.1 instead. That change would result in the creation of wildfly 23.0.3.
As Brian mentioned in his mail about "WildFly Releases in 2022”, WildFly 26.1 will be the last version of WildFly to run on Java SE 8 (and EE8). WildFly 27 is targeting Java EE 10 and Java SE 11.
Does that answer your questions?

Yes it does. Thank you. I will bring this to the attention of The Powers That Be on my project and suggest that consider moving to 26.
