           Summary: update-webkit --chromium spitting out a spurious error
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Tools / Tests
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: prasadt at chromium.org

update-webkit --chromium invokes invokes update-webkit-chromium which checks for gclient.  And it does this by looking the value of `gclient --version`.  When gclient is not in the path, it returns an error.  Given that this is not a failure and the script moves on to look for it in other places, this ends up as spurious error in the output that can be misleading.

One fix would be to redirect stderr of the command to "nul" on windows and "/dev/null" on other platforms.
