The following are the spec and example files for logging.conf.


# The format and semantics of this file are described in this article at Python.org:
# [Configuration file format](https://docs.python.org/2/library/logging.config.html#configuration-file-format)
# This file must contain sections called [loggers], [handlers] and
# [formatters] which identify by name the entities of each type which are defined in the
# file. For each such entity, there is a separate section which identifies how that entity
# is configured.
