I'm also looking forward to cleaning up the logging in OpenStack projects.
May I suggest on the etherpad that we take an approach of listing
*specific* log messages that we (devs doing debugging and operators
doing diagnostics/operations) find less than useful?
I think if we keep the etherpad focused on specific log messages, we can
then start to identify:
* changes to those log messages (structure, level, audience, payload, etc)
* log message "archetypes" that we can then use to generalize into
best practice documentation on the wiki (to add to what is already there
Does this sound like a reasonable approach?
