Hi Jouko. I agree with Clint. There are just a couple of points here:

- The patch no longer applies cleanly to the Ubuntu upstart package as upstart-job has changed a little.
- I'd personally prefer the variables to be called ECHO (rather than ECHO_NOTE) and ECHO_ERROR since its then a smaller change and less likely for errors to be introduced should someone change the file and inadvertently specify ECHO (as they used to).

Title:
  Option to quiet /lib/init/upstart-jobs [RFE,PATCH]

Status in “upstart” package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: upstart

  /lib/init/upstart-job clutters my messages with duplicate, unnecessary
  messages. I want an option to silence it.

  The same notification, "Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, ...", is output every single time any init script linked to upstart-job is executed. If I modify /lib/init/upstart-job directly, updating upstart becomes difficult.
  This script is a Debian/Ubuntu addition, fully defined in the upstart-*.diff.

  I've attached the both a patch, and the replacement upstart-job script
  itself; these are compatible with both upstart-0.6.5 and 0.6.6.

  Default behaviour stays exactly the same.

  Short description of the changes:

  The ECHO variable is split into two, ECHO_NOTE and ECHO_ERROR, which receive the same values ECHO had.
  However, if file /etc/upstart-jobs.conf exists, it is sourced, so that the two variables can be overridden easily.
