Re: ETTR & under-expose: darktable manual inconsistency?

I get what you mean, Greg.

Following part should be ignored, because I was wrong. Compensation value depends on what value was set on camera. If you chose -0.3 EV, darktable would compensate with +0.3 EV. If you chose +1 EV, it would compensate with -1 EV. And so on. --

I suspect darktable developers see ETTR generally as over-exposure, though. In the exposure module, by default checkbox compensate camera exposure (-0.3 EV) is selected. When hovering over it, a hint is displayed:

Automatically remove the camera exposure bias. This is useful if you exposed the image to the right.
