Description of problem:
Got asked/pointed at this by coworker who was looking at bootup image of  that there where no [OK] Status for the mountpoints as well as misleading [OK] messages for example
"Starting Recreate Volatile Files and Directories..." shows no OK MSG ( should this line be displayed as in Starting line? ).
[ OK ] Started Recreate Volatile Files and Directories.
I guess it basically just boils down to showing just lines like Started ( not Starting ) Mounted ( Not mounting ) etc in the bootup with OK/Failed but leave "Starting" for debug output.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
We can only sanely append output to the end of the screen, since terminals suck and we don't want to do full ncurses and then have two codepaths for smart and for dumb terminals.
Because of that we will print one line when we start doing things, without and "[ ok ]" or "[ failed ]" on it. After all, it's just starting to do that step, so we don't have any ultimate success/failure information about it. Then, later, when the job finished, we will print the second line, this time with that "[ ok ]" or "[ failed ]" prefixed.
Having both lines is highly relevant, so that the admin can identify what the system waits for, and also what the result of the jobs are.
So, I'd argue that the output is as good as it gets, given that we only can add output to the end of the screen, and we always need to show both information about the beginning and the end of a job.
