How seriously should I take these QA warnings?
Now that I am beginning to populate my Gentoo system, I keep getting warnings from portage that "this package contains bad programming practice and may fail in random ways". Not exactly what one wants to hear about one's software! Some of these packages come from impeccable sources too: glib was one of them and that's absolutely foundational: the whole gdk/gtk system is based on it. In fact, if I remember correctly, gtk also carries a health warning.
Does this mean that:
a) the people at gnome.org are shoddy programmers?
b) the people at gentoo.org are paranoid? or
c) I've stumbled into the midst of a feud that no-one told me about?
My money is on the third option
