New submission from Mike Fogel <mike at fogel.ca>:

Hi, there's been a fair amount of confusion over the interaction between logger.propagate and the ancestor logger's handlers and level.


I think most this confusion could be avoided if the documentation for logger.propagate were expanded to explain clearly what happens when propagate evaluates to True - right now it just explains clearly what happens when it evaluates to False.

Attached is a documentation patch that does this.

Thanks for your consideration!
