I'll often run sudo pacman -Sy on my dialup PC and afterwards pacman -Sup > pkgs2get.txt to fetch those packages on another box (wget -N -c -nv -i pkgs2get.txt). With 2.9.8 the file only contained urls, as supposed. But with 3.0.0 it will also include this at the top:

:: Starting full system upgrade...
warning: pacman: local (3.0.0-1) is newer than current (2.9.8-4)
resolving dependencies... done.
This task depends upon

I started looking at this and it unfortunately is not the easy fix I thought it would be. Right now we have a rather convoluted system of output in pacman, with several macros, logging, and debugging functions. In addition, both pacman and libalpm produce some output which is not ideal at all.

I understand it is a bit inconvenient to remove these lines, but that will have to do for now until we get some of the other stuff straightened out.

Quick ideas:
* Maybe we could set 0x00 logmask?
* modify cb_trans_evt to print PM_TRANS_EVT_PRINTURI event only in this case
