Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2023-07-02 06:56:34 UTC

Issue: app-misc/ddcutil-1.4.1 adds -Werror flag on its own.
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.
