Item5056: TWiki's logging is untidy
TWiki's access logging to
makes wrong guesses and is inconsistent:
- User agent heuristics:
- Internet Explorer 6 is identified as "Mozilla"
- Firefox is identified as empty string
- User id field:
- Most scripts log (in 4.2!) the unmodified login id
- save with repRev logs the canonical id in the "detail" column
- register logs the wikiname
- Log file format:
logYYYYMM.txt has TML-table-ready format
warnYYYYMM.txt lack the closing vertical bar on each line
I failed to find any documentation about TWiki's logging, so I guess it is a WAI (Works As Implemented).
setting to Crawford, he's in that code atm

I rewrote the logging recently, and it (unintentionally) crept into 1.0.4. The rewrite doesn't cure all
the problems above, but at least now all the log files are in a consistent format.

can we close it? - aka have you done all you're likely to address Harald's task?

I have done all I'm likely to, but it doesn't address Harald's user agent problem, so have to leave this open.
