Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-03-20 10:07:10 UTC
If a package fails to compile with CFLAGS="-Werror=format-security" please add a block to this tracker.

Other distros (like Fedora/Debian) build with format-security, so you could find patch(es) in their repository.

Comment 1 Sergei Trofimovich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2020-03-22 15:06:10 UTC
I agree with https://bugs.gentoo.org/259417#c7 and prefer these bugs to be sorted upstream. There are quite a few false positives expected around the flag, like https://bugs.gentoo.org/714000
