1. Should the change of quiet build default in recent portage versions
The timeframe between suggestion and implementation was less than 14
hours, so way too less time for a real discussion. Additionally, the
discussion following the change has shown, that there is no consensus
about this change neither for developers nor for users. So i would like
to see this reverted, at least until we get to a consensus at this topic
in which case the consensus result should be implemented.
2. Should the default output of portage be changed to quiet?
If yes, is a simple portage message for 2.1.* users enough to inform
users about this highly visible change? Especially in the context in
mind, that a good amount of packages have elog messages, so it is pretty
easy to miss this hint for a change in portage behaviour.
