Log access on non-rooted Android

Recommended Posts

Scenario:  As a user, I run into a problem with Sync.  I want to provide useful information to the developers so that they are actually able to solve the problem with a reasonable amount of effort.

Current situation:  I turn on debug logging in Sync's settings.  I do a web search to find out where I can find my log.  Sync documentation on logging defers to Sync documentation on "data folder" location.  This documentation shows a path that is only accessible as a root user on Android, and notes such.

Ideal situation:  Sync for Android provides either
A) An option to set the location of the log file
B) An action to send the log file
