Hi, sorry it took a bit for me to respond.

I take it you have multiple updates active at once, such that you're not
sure which didn't answer?

Yeah, I understand the utility of a data source log file of sorts. At the
moment, if you compile with debugging support, any errors or timeouts will
partially show up on the std output. My debug messages aren't always that
consistent though. For Amazon, at least, since I can't debug it myself, I
added capability to use an environmental variable such that the data output
is written to a log file for later debugging.

A general purpose log file would be useful if there multiple issues or
problems. I added a wishlist bug to help me keep it in mind.

Thanks for the suggestion.
