The nova team spent a lot of time in Mitaka starting to clean up the
config options that were scattered all over the codebase, and improve
the help text for each of them so that you didn't need to grep the
source code to find out what they did.

I could see a similar effort for oslo.log (and maybe other oslo
projects), and I would be happy to help out.
