bin/fresh fails on `CLR_GREEN=`tput setaf 2` (Debian 10, Qemu, default TERM=vt220)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Context is T250808: Decide how to run a test involving docker inside WMF CI.

We're invoking a VM via Qemu running Debian 10 and the default TERM is black-and-white. Supporting only plain text and bold text. As such, tput informs us some of the colors are unavailable.

It prints no error message but exits non-zero. I didn't realise before that this command can exit non-zero under what I consider normal conditions (e.g. falling back to no colors), but confirms that this is normal.
