Sorry for missing this session :|
No travel funding this time.

> - Desire to create a simple logging config like 'json' that will
> when set apply the various related settings so that it becomes much
> easier to use the json formatter. This also should allow for setting
> 'fluent' or 'color' (with integration into devstack that uses this,
> so that devstack can remove a bunch of its color customizations).

Who can I work with on this please?

> - Docs needed that explain how mutable logging will be used, and
> examples of how to use it with a existing project (for operators)


> - Review needed @ https://review.openstack.org/#/c/263312/ so that
> the mutable options will be reloaded, please help as able!

This has merged now, thank you Elena + Joshua :)

I've been doing some testing on cases like configuring a handler, then
not configuring that handler. So far I'm happy with how dictConfig is
handling it. My tests are published as gists so you can run them

Please raise specific concerns so they can be tested and addressed.
