Muffling and silencing messages

Name repair messages are signaled with inform() and are given the class "rlib_message_name_repair". These messages can be muffled with base::suppressMessages().

Name repair messages can also be silenced with the global option rlib_name_repair_verbosity. This option takes the values:

  • "verbose": Always verbose.

  • "quiet": Always quiet.

When set to quiet, the message is not displayed and the condition is not signaled. This is particularly useful for silencing messages during testing when combined with local_options().
