Django - Duplicate Unformatted Logs

Recently I worked on a bug that was causing duplicate unformatted log messages to appear in a Django app's logs. I made a repository that demonstrates the issue:

The problem was caused by an accidental call to (without using logging.getLogger to get a specific logger) while the root logger isn't already configured.

The solution ended up being to get rid of the accidental calls to and configuring the root logger to prevent it from accidentally happening again. I go into more details in that repo.
