Rosser Schwarz and I have been working on the Bucardo logging 
for a bit now, and we've just pushed a giant batch of changes 
related to that. This is probably the last major change before 
we release 4.5.0, so now is a very good time to start testing 
out the version in git as heavily as you can.

The logging is controlled by a new config paramater 'log_level'. 
The possible values are (in order of increasing noisiness) 
TERSE, NORMAL, VERBOSE, and DEBUG. The default is NORMAL, which 
you'll find is a *lot* less chatty than the old version of Bucardo. 
Setting it to TERSE should output only the most important things, 
and keep your logs nice and small. The VERBOSE setting is roughly 
equivalent to the old version, with the caveat that a few of the 
really unimportant messages such as listen/notice activity has 
been shifted to DEBUG.

It's case-insensitive, and you can pop around the levels on the 
fly by changing it via bucardo_ctl and then calling reload_config.
For example:

bucardo_ctl start
bucardo_ctl kick mysync 0
bucardo_ctl log_level=verbose
bucardo_ctl reload_config
bucardo_ctl log_level=Terse
bucardo_ctl reload_config

A full list of changes for 4.5.0 can be found in the 'Changes' file.

If anyone has anything else they would like to see in 4.5.0, now is 
the time to speak up!
