Thanks for these new modules.  They definitely seem useful.

Based on the past year of data we get 4.1 new modules per day on Drupal.org

If people want to know about all of them they can subscribe to
If they want to know about the "important" ones they can subscribe to

I don't think announcing them on the Development list is a good idea in general.

This sounds a lot like the syslog and/or trace and/or log4drupal functionality


As a module developer, I don't want to have to choose which one of
these I support or (worse) include calls to all three.  I'd rather see
this project merged with those projects so we can have the "one true
logging module" instead of "3 logging modules that do similar things
and which in the end make life harder for developers and site admins".
