Description Petri T. Koistinen 2004-03-06 21:47:58 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040122 Debian/1.6-1

Description of problem:
I want to keep my system up to date. I use script like this:

$ cat /etc/cron.daily/up2date.sh
up2date --nox -u | egrep -v '^($|Fetching|Name|---|All)'

Why up2date don't have --non-verbose option that will supress all
output when there is nothing to say, i.e. no updates.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. up2date -u daily
2. if no update is available you will only see useless noise

Oh, you don't bother even to leave a comment why you closed this
enchancement request. I find that quite arrogant, but what else you
can expect from somebody living in USA.
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2004-03-22 16:10:45 EST
I'm not going to fix it.
Comment 3 Petri T. Koistinen 2004-03-22 16:15:32 EST
I am sorry, that's little bit too harsh comment. I did try to say:
"Please, don't ignore me.", but that's too late now, I guess.
Comment 4 Petri T. Koistinen 2004-03-22 16:17:14 EST
Thanks for comment. It is OK to say that don't want to fix it. Fine.
I'll just my script.
