User interractions with a geocache are recorded in the cache log as a log entries.

Each log entry has a type, indicating an action or a status, in addition to the user supplied log entry text.

All log entries generate a notification email to the cache owner. Notification may be individual (per log) or digest.

This document describes the existing log types across Opencaching sites.
