Traces are still using the OpenCensus format internally, yes? This is going to hamper performance. I still feel that logs is a distraction and that the charter for OTel includes spans and metrics until it reaches 1.0
@jmacd No. Traces are using OTLP for most of core components (except Zipkin).
Thanks. I had heard otherwise as recently as this morning. I recommend a SIG for logging w/ its own approvers. For me, paying attention to logs will slow down metrics..
Having log approvers makes sense to me.
@bogdandrutu I believe we were already moving in the direction of having separate approvers for signals, right?
It's "approved" for metrics, but not deployed.
I am moving to that direction, final cleanups before we enable that
@zenmoto is gitter a good communication mechanism? LMK if there’s a better option.
@jeffalder it should be, though you may have to @ me if I don’t reply here. I’ll be better about running the client so I get notifications.
The PR for the spec seems like there are a bunch of vendor specific things. Why do Splunk need SignalFX events and Splunk events? Same with the google/amazon log fields, we could make those generic versus specific.
hm? that isn't the case. also the otep PR is not the spec, it is the process before a spec is written
ah saw your comments on the PR. don't think you should worry about getting in a logz.io mapping/example to the OTEP. -- unless you think it shows something that would require changing the otep, but the otep isn't the spec so the spec isn't in stone after its merger
I didn't bother sending an Erlang mapping like there is for log4j and zap because I don't think it would add anything to the otep, but there certainly will be one when the spec is complete
@tigrannajaryan thank you for all the amazing work and your leadership 👍🏻🙏🍻

Congrats @tigrannajaryan ! That's great!
Thanks everyone for reviewing and providing valuable feedback. Next: logging libraries, log protocol and log data support in Collector.
@/all I have to move the SIG meeting time today to 11am PT avoid the overlap with OpenTelemetry Community meeting.
I am not sure if this is the correct location to ask this question; however, are there specific individuals that are allowed to participate in the Log SIG meetings? I am looking to listen on the calls, but I am open to contributing. TIA!
