Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Default server log level
Date Mon, 17 Sep 2007 14:20:48 GMT
I'll be the dissenting opinion :)

Personally, I don't like INFO as its too verbose and it is not  
consistent across projects. If we moved it I would prefer WARN rather  
than INFO but it largely depends on who we feel the largest user  
population is..  I'm more concerned about people's impression of G  
from a performance perspective.  Although, I'll concede that  
production and performance related deployments are probably in the  
minority relative to the number of developers.

I would think changing this would make most sense for 2.1 rather in  
the 2.0.x stream but it probably won't make a big difference.

So, my net, is I like it where it is but won't blow a gasket on  
changing it.
