Replying to drkirkby:

I think Leif said the verbose output could be useful to find packages which have unnecessary files in them.

That was meant a joke. (I don't expect people to read the full, nearly 300,000-lines install.log, but incidentally noticed the mentioned obsolete SageNB files when watching the build process.)

But personally I think that issue should be resolved when packages are reviewed.

Of course. Unfortunately it's unlikely people look into the Mercurial repository for deleted files. (Ok, you can see them when verbosely unpacking an spkg manually, or do du -sh on the spkg's directory, which a reviewer should perhaps also do.)

I've not objections to adding an environment variable to control it, but it's more work than a one-character patch!

Obviously, but shouldn't carry much more of a danger.

    initial v3  
    1 The `sage-spkg` script runs `tar` with the `v` option to extract spkgs.  This significantly increases the size of many installation logs.  Not adding the option would make the logs easier to navigate, too.

    33I think Leif Leonhardy proposed this, somewhere.
