Subject Should we change the default startup progress format for 1.0?
Date Thu, 01 Dec 2005 23:54:32 GMT
A few people have suggested we change the default startup format to one 
that doesn't use line feeds to update the progress of a configuration 
that is being loaded.

I like the existing startup format as it looks fancy and doesn't produce 
as many lines of output than the longer format (see example below), but 
it isn't very usable when error messages are issued as the display of 
the error can end up being garbled due to the thread that updates the 
configuration status line (using line feeds) every 500ms.  This could 
become a support issue.

Now is the time to decide, as it will be harder to change our minds 
later after 1.0.

I am proposing that the existing default progress output be used when 
the -s or --short option is specified.  This will impact existing 

Here is an example of the output in the proposed long format:
