Ouput from "dependencies" task interleaved with output from downloads

When using Gradle 2.13 on a project freshly cloned from a Git repository (i.e. it was not built yet, and artifacts were not downloaded to the cache yet), and running ./gradlew project_name:dependencies, the tree output might get interleaved with output from downloading the artifacts. It looks like this:

I believe that’s a bug as it breaks the tree output and make sit hard to read.

You can avoid the noise with the -q command line argument.

Right. But then -q should be implied by the dependencies task. Otherwise its tree output is pretty much useless, esp. when parsing it further.
