Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-09-28 11:48:42 UTC

Issue: dev-libs/aws-sdk-cpp-1.8.46-r1 uses -Werror for build.
Discovered on: amd64 (internal ref: ci)

-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.

Thanks for the link. The flag will be removed on the next bump.

(Which isn't far away, as the AWS-SDK is very speedy in releases...)
Comment 2 Sven Eden 2020-09-29 08:30:42 UTC
Not only did aws-c-common leak a -Werror into the build system, see bug 745093, but the SDK also adds this flag.

Great for debugging, but not for a release, agreed.

Also the dependency on aws-checksums is wrong, it'll get fixed, too.
