Yes. See [http://bbdev.fluffy.co.uk/trac/wiki/FeatureRequests]:
* Perhaps we could add a protocol command that the client sends to the
server to request it to log a message (Chris). For example, indicate
"not uploading changes to files" (for "Exceeded storage limits on
server" or any other reason) on server side for admin convenience.
Should be in "bbstoreaccounts check" and "bbstoreaccounts info" and
/var/log/box and maybe even in /var/log/messages. Use "error" or
"warning" string for easy grep-ing (PJ). We have to be careful about
denial of service (log flooding) against the server by the client
No developer has committed to working on it yet, though.
