Anyone interested in becoming a champion for this cause?


Hi John,

keeping a reasonable warning-management IMO this is another crucial point, because people for now get drowned. Suggest as a first step to abolish all pure warnings, keeping errors only. I.e. tell if something is broken or very probably broken. Abolish all pure warnings, style warnings etc.

Then let's establish a policy for warnings - which needs an api, which didn't exist or was not right when looked into some years ago.
