Oh i apologize.

I'm still quite new to all of this and I don't have a firm understanding of what third party creators go through. Do you have some code in mind that I could byte compile to see these warnings so I can get a sense of what issues there are? Granted I see lots of warnings when grabbing from Melpa but I always dismiss the buffer. So maybe we could use one clear example to have tangible issues and a canonical example of annoyances that third party creators go through.

Hi Daniel,

I don't disagree with what you say, but your reply belongs
in your original topic ("Solving some specific warnings

However, it was my bad to introduce this new topic by
asking a general question when replying to your statement
about this particular message.  To my mind it brought up a
general problem.  My response was not really to what you
were trying to say - sorry.  I should have just started a
new topic, without referring to what you said.

And this part of your reply does pertain to the topic I
