In October 2009 I created PEP 391 to propose a new method of configuring logging using dictionaries:


In November 2009 I posted to this list that the PEP was ready for review.

I have had numerous helpful comments from some of you, and I have incorporated most of them into updates to the PEP. Though I have the feeling from community discussions that the PEP has been generally favourably received - well I would think that, wouldn't I? ;-) - I've not asked for a vote and so I don't know the state of community consensus regarding this PEP.

So, can you please indicate your vote for or against incorporating PEP 391 into Python? It would be nice if I could incorporate the changes before 2.7a3 is released! Ideally, I would like to check in the changes unless there are objections to doing so. All those who think that logging is currently hard to configure will benefit from these changes, so here's the opportunity to pipe up and improve things.

Thanks & regards,

Vinay Sajip
