Bad warning / info messages in the build scripts

Bug #316208 reported by Stanislaw Pitucha on 2009-01-12
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The build script for 2.6.28-4 uses strange messages visible to the user (debian/scripts/module-check)
"WW: Explicitly asked to ignore failures (probably not good)"
"EE: Missing modules (start begging for mercy)"
"II: New modules (you've been busy, wipe the poop off your nose)"
"II: No new modules (hope you're happy, slacker)"

Private comments in the source code are one thing... But I think that calling people slackers and telling them to wipe poop off their noses crosses the line a bit. Also, these comments are completely useless. Please remove them.

This is not a bug in the linux-meta package, moving to the linux package.

Still looks like the comments exist in Karmic. Setting this to Triaged.
