How is using logger.warning different from logger.log(logging.WARNING, “”) when they both do the same thing and why is one being chosen over the other, please clarify the logic.

Furthermore, using the logger.INFO(level, msg) format (with logging.WARNING as the level and the message provided by the instructions) doesn’t even return the log message specified by step 3 of this lesson, yet the lesson module seems to consider it ‘correct’ anyway.

Currently, the only way to both get the output the lesson says we should get AND mark step 3 as correct is to use the logger.warning(msg) format. I think the site programmers need to do some debugging on this lesson.
