We added the warning message: "You have too many privates and this can affect performance. Learn how to ignore private files: https://www.plasticscm.com/download/help/statusperfhintsignoreprivates". This warning message alerts the users about the big number of private files stored inside the workspace. Private items can cause a delay not only in the Pending Changes view but also at the "cm status" command because both of them use the same core system.
How to remove the warning message?
This warning message can be annoying if you try to parse the command output; you can easily hide the message by using the '--machinereadable' parameter.
The 'machinereadable' is heavily used by 'cmdrunner', our 'cm' command line wrapper. Click the following link for further information: https://www.plasticscm.com/documentation/cmdrunner/plastic-scm-version-control-cmdrunner-guide.shtml
