Description Watanabe, Yuki 2008-12-20 03:31:05 EST
Description of problem:
When the renice command is invoked, it prints the old and new
nice values to the standard output, but this behavior is not
posixly correct.
POSIX says stdout is not used by the command,
which means nothing must be written to stdout.

We should make the command print nothing by default and
possibly add some option to restore the current behavior.

Comment 1 Karel Zak 2009-03-19 05:47:52 EDT
What about all the scripts that depend on the current Linux specific behaviour? 

This change is not backwardly compatible and I don't see any real and important enough reason to change the current behaviour. Sorry, it seems like a WONTFIX from my point of view.

If have any objections, please reopen.
