I've found minor issue on
You can also set the logging level outside your program code using an environment variable. For instance, in Sugar .82 and lower you can start sugar-emulator like this:
The way you accomplish the same thing in Sugar .84 and greater is to edit the file ~/.sugar/debug and uncomment the line that sets the SUGAR_LOGGER_LEVEL.
"SUGAR_LOGGER_LEVEL=debug sugar-emulator" will will work in 0.84+ as
well if ~/.sugar/debug doesn't reset SUGAR_LOGGER_LEVEL, i.e.,
~/.sugar/debug just overrides current values right before launching
