Setting quiet loglevel with has no effect

Hi. I’m attempting to set the loglevel to quiet (the same as supplying the “-q” or “–quiet” args) via, but it doesn’t appear to be working as expected:

$ cat
$ ./gradlew tasks

Now compare that to using the quiet argument:

$ ./gradlew -q tasks
(no "Downloading" log message is output)

I feel like I’m missing something but I can’t figure it out. Got any suggestions to hide that “Downloading” message via
