[SDKs] There is no way to silence arv-put and arv-get
On successful upload, 'arv-put' spits out a message of the form "Collection saved ...". There is no way to silence this output short of redirecting stderr to /dev/null. 'arv-put' and 'arv-get' should at least have an option to silence non-error stderr messages.
This came up in the context of trying to automate 'arv-put' upload through a cron job. Since 'arv-put' sends a message on successful upload to keep, the only way to silence spurious email reporting is to redirect stderr to /dev/null, precluding the possibility of catching real errors.

--silent flag to
arv-put so that it doesn't produce any output on normal operations.
Added related tests.
arv-get command, I believe that passing the already existing
--no-progress flag would produce the desired outcome.

Added test to prove that
arv-get does not write the progress when stderr is not a tty.

- "Do not produce any output unless an error happens." => "Do not print any debug messages to console. (Any error messages will still be displayed.)" ?
Can you please throw in a new line between the two test blocks (is tty and not tty)? Also, moving the comment “Confirm that progress is written to stderr when is a tty” and its counterpart to before setting the tty flag might improve readability of each of the code blocks
- test_silent_mode => test_silent_mode_no_errors? Also, you might want to consider saying "no console output will be printed" instead of "no output will be printed" in the comments in the tests.
