Comment (by Carlton Gibson):

 I think what's meant here is the default for **dictConfig** if
 `disable_existing_loggers` isn't provided.

 > If absent, this parameter defaults to `True`.

 https://docs.python.org/3.7/library/logging.config.html#dictionary-schema-
 details

 I guess the point is that it's important to provide
 `disable_existing_loggers: False` because often the default behaviour is
 not what you want. (''Why aren't my loggers working?'' comes up a lot
 because of this.)

 For me, it'd be worth a rephrase to clarify this. (We see a lot of
 confusions.)
