Subject: wget -nv outputs non-error output to stderr
Date: Fri, 5 Apr 2002 14:42:10 +0200
Package: wget
Version: 1.8.1-4

Hi,

% wget -nv ftp://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/dists/unstable/main/binary-alpha/Packages.gz >/dev/null
14:34:14 URL: ftp://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/dists/unstable/main/binary-alpha/Packages.gz [1727371] -> "Packages.gz" [1]
% echo $?
0

That message was not an error (or warning), so it should not have been
printed on stderr, but on stdout. Printing it on stderr makes it hard to
filter out informative messages and keep the errors; if the errors and
normal messages were separated to stderr and stdout respectively, a simple
>/dev/null would work.

Please fix this. TIA.

Subject: Debian "wget" bugreporter information
Date: 21 Apr 2003 01:42:54 +0200
Dear Debian "wget" bug reporter,

I just want to inform you why your bug report is still open or why it
looks like that nobody is working on fixing the bugs reported against
the wget package (http://bugs.debian.org/wget).

Since some month I didn't report bugs and problems to the upstream
author/mailinglist (http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/#mailinglists)
because wget right now has no maintainer who is working on it or fixes
bugs.:(

http://www.gnu.org/help/help.html
--8<--
We are looking for new maintainers for these GNU packages (contact
<maintainers@gnu.org> if you'd like to volunteer): 
      * ...
      * wget (which still has a maintainer, but he would like to step
        down)
--8<--

This is the reason why reporting bugs to the wget mailinglist right now
doesn't make sense because nobody will work on them. When there will be
a new maintainer I will report the open bugs in the Debian Bug Tracking
System (BTS) to him but this may take some time (the help request on the
gnu.org page is there since a month; maybe you know somebody:)).

Thanks for reporting bugs.:)

That message was not an error (or warning), so it should not have been
printed on stderr, but on stdout. Printing it on stderr makes it hard to
filter out informative messages and keep the errors; if the errors and
normal messages were separated to stderr and stdout respectively, a simple
>/dev/null would work.

Follow-up Comment #1:

POSIX defines stderr as: "standard error (for writing diagnostic output)". 
That one is a diagnostic message so it is not a problem to use stderr for it.
