Log levels are quite controversial but I would like to see some less output from the report generation on the INFO level. Currently, one gets:
[INFO] Generating "JIRA Report" report.
[INFO] JIRA lives at: http://jira.codehaus.org
> I know, that where it was configured in the POM
[INFO] The JIRA URL http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MJAVACC doesn't include a pid, trying to extract it from JIRA.
> Well, I know this as well
[INFO] Successfully reached JIRA.
[INFO] Downloading from JIRA at: http://jira.codehaus.org/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?view=rss&pid=11216
> Wow, that's a pretty URL to read
[INFO] Downloading from JIRA was successful
> I'm an optimist so I expected that. Better tell me things that suprise me.
[INFO] The JIRA Report will contain issues only for the current version.
> Cool, it's honoring my configuration again!
As my not so serious comments shall indicate, I consider most of the current INFO ouput quite uninteresting during a regular build. It either reports back the plugin configuration or the expected behavior. Therefore, I personally would be fine with just "Generating "JIRA Report" report".
