27 Just don't. I think you missed the point hard and I don't want to know
28 where the ricochet ended.
30 First of all, the QA's issue is not really about verbosity of repoman.
31 It's more about developers who ignore repoman output and commit broken
32 ebuilds which QA needs to fix afterwards. '--nonag' would mean that
33 some developers will introduce even more warnings for others...
35 Secondly, AutoRepoman is already filtering repoman's output. If Patrick
36 disliked a particular warning, he'd filter it already. He doesn't need
37 easy-available repoman option for that.
39 Thirdly, I'm pretty sure I had a third argument but I forgot what it
40 was. But it was totally convincing, I'm sure of it.
