[hibernate-dev] Core Logging WTF!?

can someone enlighten me on how to configure the logging at the moment?
For an issue I am working on I wanted to increase the log level to debug  
in the hibernate-core module of master.
As always I went to log4.properties and started to edit it. Needless to  
say that nothing happened. First I thought
something must be wrong with the IDE setup, but it turned out the same  
 from the command line build :(

At some stage while growing more and more frustrated I remembered that  
there is talk and work in progress for changing
the logging. I finally checked the logging dependencies where I found:

         slf4j_simple:   'org.slf4j:slf4j-simple:' + slf4jVersion,
         jcl_slf4j:      'org.slf4j:jcl-over-slf4j:' + slf4jVersion,

So I take it that we are not using log4j anymore, but how do I configure  
logging now? And why do we still have the
log4j.properties files checked in, if they are obsolete?
