Having received feedback that this isn’t at all clear about what happens next:
The immediate step is that I need you, Pieter, to make the following decisions:
- which console log mechanism is going to exist in Telly?
- what does that change for our users?
- what documentation effect does that have?
- what other changes need to be made in Puppet to reflect this?
Specifically, if the new log mechanism is going to continue to exist I need to know the full set of UX requirements around it: where it works, how it works, how compatibility is maintained or broken, what documentation changes are required, and any other UX drivers that I am not aware of yet.

The plan to correct this is that we will update the new console code to include the context – unless that is “Puppet” only. That still gives the right “what” most of the time, but reduces visual noise.
