We've Moved!

Ticket tracking is now hosted in JIRA: https://tickets.puppetlabs.com


Description

Right now we only print backtraces if the trace option is turned on. For many cases this makes sense, but if an exception actually reaches the top level of execution and we don’t know what to do with it, it is a bug and we should print a backtrace so that it can be reported more usefully.

If we have UX buy in for this, then I am strongly in favor of this happening ASAP.

Since we have UX buy in for this, I am strongly in favor of this happening ASAP.
