What do the switches "--verbose" and "--extra-verbose" do for ctest?

So, I am running ctest as a script, with -S.

It seems that with no switches, all my message(STATUS “something”) reports are lost, whereas with --verbose, they are mixed with test output.

Is there a way to make ctest print the message(STATUS “something”) messages, but not test output?

I don’t think so, no. Probably worth an issue.
