In the following sentence, I'm guessing "tenants" means "design goals" (based on the context):
One of the fundamental tenants of Log4j 2 is to use immutable objects whenever possible and to lock at the lowest granularity possible.
I'm not familiar with this usage of "tenants" (there's probably another meaning I'm unaware of) versus this meaning:
- One that pays rent to use or occupy land, a building, or other property owned by another.
- A dweller in a place; an occupant.
- Law One who holds or possesses lands, tenements, or sometimes personal property by any kind of title.
I guessed that it was a typo, but searches for "tennant", "tenent", and "tennent" yielded no results. Can someone please provide the definition (and/or a link)?
