Bug ID: 60247
           Summary: Changes to LogLevel for 404 errors in 2.4 not
                    reflected in Documentation
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.4-HEAD
          Hardware: PC
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation

Apparently a "Bug" was fixed in 2.4 to omit 404 "File not found" from LogLevel
Error and downgrade them to LogLevel Info [1].

Discussion leading up to the change: [2]

This change broke the documentation.

The ErrorLog directive [3] clearly contains an outdated example:

  A typical log message follows:

  [Fri Sep 09 10:42:29.902022 2011] [core:error] [pid 35708:tid 4328636416]
[client] File does not exist:

The LogLevel shown in the example is now wrong, and with the default LogLevel
of "warn", the message would never make it to the error log in the first place.

The LogLevel directive [4] does not mention which LogLevel is required in order
to show "File not found" errors.

Discussion spawned by the lack of proper documentation: [5]

The documentation for both the ErrorLog and LogLevel directives should reflect
the changed behavior, and should include an example on how to restore or
approximate the previous behavior. I'm currently experimenting with:

LogLevel warn core:info

So far it seems to work as intended, i.e. it works like 2.2 and prior versions
