It's logged at the default verbosity level (which contains important and 
general--this message is, specifically, in the general messages).

I updated the script to make it a bit better with 0.24 version output.

I also updated the page with better (correct :) instructions.  Note that 
all the information is in the master backend log file, so just run it 
against that one--regardless of how many remote backends you have.

So, download the new copy and try again.
