Can you post a log booted with plymouth:debug ?

Most of these changes are script specific, so I'll leave this stuff
for Charlie to respond to.

Right, I was going to do some logging changes before doing a 0.8.4
release, but maybe i'll do those changes after the release.

Documentation is something very much lacking in plymouth.  I want to
rectify that before 1.0.

the autogoo model is a little weird here.  The version of the source
in the tarball contains generated files that aren't checked into
version control.  When making a release, I do

"make distcheck"

which creates the tarball and adds the generated files to the tarball.
 If you're just building a snapshot you can do:

"make dist"

which does the same thing but skips a bunch of checks and a test
compile that take a lot of time.
