1. Should the change of quiet build default in recent portage versions be reverted? 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.
