How to make mrepo more (or less) verbose
========================================
mrepo has 2 options to influence what it prints.
-q, --quiet minimal output
-v, --verbose increase verbosity
-vv, -vvv, -vvvv.. increase verbosity more
To make mrepo only print essential messages (but be quiet when everything
is ok), use -q/--quiet
To make mrepo report more about what it is doing, you can provide -v multiple
times. Here's what it means:
options level description
""""""" """"" """""""""""
-q 0 be quiet if no problems
(no options) 1 print mrepo progress (normal)
-v 2 print mrepo progress (detailed)
-vv 3 print mrepo progress (detailed) + print helper-program output (normal)
-vvv 4 print mrepo progress (detailed) + print helper-program output (detailed)
-vvvv 5 print mrepo progress (debug) + print helper-program output (detailed)
-vvvvv 6 print mrepo progress (debug) + print helper-program output (debug)
Not all helper-programs have options to increase verbosity or enable debugging.
Currently it is not possible to have mrepo (or its tools) print out what files
are new and what files have been deleted. It's hard to do this tool-independent,
though there are other implementations that are possible (inotify,
directory-listing).
Rsync has specific options for allowing this, check the rsync manual and use
the rsync-options directive to add options.
