From email discussion...


Speaking of which, I wouldn't mind seeing a revamp of that output. The

grabber descriptions should probably only be displayed if requested via something like --desc... it's kinda pointless to print that out all the time. Similarly, grabber quality probably belongs in a --desc output, not --status. But grabber version could be significant so I think should go back in the main --status table.

It would also be nice if "Last Run" output the time of day rather than

date when date == today.

Oh, and I don't really like the grabber's status being overwritten when

the version updates. You lose important info that way.

Whaddya think?


indeed, i think it can do with a fair revamp:

  • last ran: should be stored in epoch time so we can use a sliding scale (if today, just list time) if yesterday say yesterday + time if within last 2 weeks say "n days ago" etc
  • there's really two types of status:
    • status from running it (& whether it succeded)
    • when last changed (admin/operational) - eg. auto-updated, enabled, disabled, update to version X.Y is pending on install of module blah, etc.

Mostly addressed by [368]. We could still split up that status output.
