We have discussed possibility to disable logs by default and have special option to turn logs on under advanced settings. Maybe with some additional warning.
But above doesn’t solve possibility of sensitive information adding to the logs. Your suggestion might work.
Also in near future it makes sense to reference specific tags of status-react’s 3rd party repos, because at the moment (for react-native-desktop and others desktop modules) we often reference just latest master and ignoring important changes to 3rd party module is a common issue at the moment (build failures, unwanted behavior, possible security holes)
