You're right. There's a little more cleaning up I want to do with respect to some open issues. So maybe I'll make a release within a week or two.

Thanks for the quick fix in the git to fix this SSL_INIT spurious message annoyance!  However it has been a month now and I was hoping to make a gentle nudge to release this fix.  It seems that various software distributions picked up v1.21.2 and distributed it this week and so now a wider user base of people are starting to see this bug.  Me for example! :-) Thanks!

Thanks for reporting the issue. That is indeed not acceptable in the quiet mode. Seems like a debug statement was accidentally left behind.

I've removed it and pushed to master. It will be a part of the next release. Since this is a major annoyance to people using Wget in scripts, I will likely mark a new release with this fix within a week.

With wget 1.21.2 it became noisy even with `-q` to get pages from SSL sites. This can be reproduced with commands that are supposed to be silent like e.g. (notice the SSL_INIT line):

  $ wget -q https://www.google.com -O /dev/null

With earlier versions (e.g. 1.21.1) the same command did not output anything to stderr.

The print statement originates from:

  src/gnutls.c:102:  fprintf(stderr,"SSL_INIT\n");

And was introduced as a side effect of:

  5fe8d269 Improve wget_options_fuzzer
