[New-bugs-announce] [issue1752] logging.basicConfig misleading behaviour

Max Ischenko report at bugs.python.org
Mon Jan 7 08:46:49 CET 2008

New submission from Max Ischenko:

Function logging.basicConfig has a confusing and undocumented behaviour:
it does nothing if there are any handlers already present in root logger.

It could be more explicit, say, by giving a ValueError in such cases.
