VLC 1.1.0 uses automake 1.11 and so the build can produce non-verbose logs like the kernel does for some years.

We can revert to the old fully verbose behaviour if we like.

Do you know if there is a Debian or pkg-multimedia policy/best-practice on this matter.

Verbose log can help debug FTBFS but increase the size of the log by 2 or 3 order of magnitude

I would think the time you waste by waiting a 3Mb file to download instead of a 3Kb file is more than regained by the detailed command lines which could provide help with problematic flags.

It's still your call, though. I don't believe there is any policy on this matter.

Debian Policy is based on common practices, not the other way around. I guess you are right, Felipe, that this is not governed by policy, but only because not yet written: I do believe it is a common practice to avoid "build noise silencers".

Here's one small piece of the puzzle: http://bugs.debian.org/551453

You can probably find some debates with varying viewpoints by searching debian-de...@lists.debian.org if not convinced as easy as I was :-)

Kind regards,
