I was trying to figure out what dfu-util is doing wrong on my system. I made a handful of changes which I've included in this patch:

  • include underlying libusb error in dfu-util failure messages
  • make a second -v turn on verbose USB logging
  • document -v in the man page
  • extra details in error messages in a couple places
  • fix a couple of typos

Could you please separate the spelling fixes and the verbosity patches into two patches?

  • HasPatchForReview set

BatchModify?: set HasPatchForReview? on 'keyword' contains 'patch'

Hi wiml.

I'm late here, but I just took aver the maintainership of dfu-util.

There is a first release planned for dfu-util in mai and I would like to include your patches into it. Agreeing with Holger here it would be great if you could split up the patch and attach them here or send them to me via mail.
