Are you serious? You really can't differentiate from an actual patch
submitted for inclusion, and something I post wishing someone could
explain to me what I missed?
I'm sorry I didn't put any bigger banner.
| What we already have in CVS is unacceptable:
| $ grep STDERR automake.in
| print STDERR "automake: programming error: @_\n";
| print STDERR "traces: discovered $source\n";
| print STDERR "traces: discovered AC_SUBST($args)\n";
I see you removed these. Let me spell out my opinion: thanks! You're
really making my life easier on implementing --trace support in
Automake. Actually you should also have removed the
warn 'automake: Autoconf traces is an experimental feature';
warn 'automake: use at your own risks';
| print STDERR "Pushing $dependees into $_\n";
This one, agreed. I'm sorry I missed it.
| # print STDERR "result_vars: $result_vars\n";
| # print STDERR "result_rules: $result_rules\n";
Yeah, right, sorry, I apologize.
| I believe that all those lines should be removed with the exception of the
| "programming error".
I don't share your opinion, and I'm quite shocked you removed the code
that helps implementing new undocumented experimental but *wanted* features.
