|0003372||Doomseeker||[All Projects] Bug||public||2018-02-15 02:05||2018-10-27 22:55|
|Target Version||1.2||Fixed in Version||1.2|
|Summary||0003372: Diagnostics messages are written to stdout (instead of stderr)|
|Description||Doomseeker's startup logs (etc) are like diagnostics messages, but treated as normal output from the program. This goes against POSIX' description of stderr:|
stdout makes sense for --version-json as conventional JSON output, but the diagnostics messages should really be changed from stdout to stderr.
|Steps To Reproduce||On Unix-like machines:|
doomseeker 1>/tmp/stdout.log 2>/tmp/stderr.log
See /tmp/stdout.log and /tmp/stderr.log for messages of the appropriate standard stream.
This was fixed:https://bitbucket.org/Doomseeker/doomseeker/commits/87122ce09493fbad5fe718acf64ef2950167fd13 [^]
I thought of submitting a bug for the bug tracker for future reference, anyway.

Interestingly enough, I would like to reopen this issue for more discussion.
One of the answers in the linked Unix & Linux Stack Exchange thread argues whether POSIX-like programs should be quiet by default (that's an Unix-y thing to do), and only output to stderr if the exit status was non-zero. To quote:
Quote from POSIX.1-2008, 1.4 Utility Description Defaults
Do we need to introduce a command line flag for --quiet or --verbose? I'd keep them to stderr, though.
Quote from WubTheCaptain
Haha disregard that, stdout probably makes more sense with a --verbose (or -v) flag with quiet by default behavior. Anyone agree?
stderr for real diagnostics errors, though.
|--version-json could indeed benefit from not being spammed with stderr logs by default|
|"--quiet" and "--verbose" added here:https://bitbucket.org/Doomseeker/doomseeker/commits/53e2af801b780f3d233bd8a24ea558535d887efd [^]|

As said, this has been resolved.
Side-note: It seems like --verbose is useless at this point and --quiet works as intended. The output isn't quiet by default (except on stdout), but uh, we don't do much with stdout anyway. It's not like Doomseeker had stdout of its server lists in some specific format for other applications to use.
This issue is already marked as resolved.
If you feel that is not the case, please reopen it and explain why.
