-Werror is basically saying that it is not safe to ship code which
produces warnings.

I personally think that if an upstream says that no warnings must be
produced by the code, and a developer should look at them before
declaring any warnings safe, then that is best followed.

However this causes a heavy maintenance burden and will frequently break
compilation, so the majority opinion is to remove -Werror from compiler
