Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-09-23 07:58:50 UTC

Issue: sys-libs/libblockdev-2.24 uses -Werror for build.
Discovered on: amd64 (internal ref: tinderbox)

-Werror is not recommended for releases and should always be disabled when encountered in build-logs, because there are numerous cases where this breaks without purpose.
