8 That's completely understandable and very well justified. My nature is
9 to ponder upon extended functionality for tools that I come across as
10 such I contribute to the thought pool occassionally. I completely agree
11 that excess optimisation over the default can make the system and its
12 components more problem prone and that this has repercussions upon the
13 administrative staff. Perhaps as a lesson to be learnt without making
14 the mistake first new users can be introduced to the hazards of
15 optimisation through appropriate documentation which does not exist at
16 the moment.
18 It was once said in GWN that a safe and supported set of CFLAGS will be
19 declared officially and that use of those CFLAGS will be a prerequisite
20 to obtaining support in the case of problems. With the initial release
21 of genflags and reassurance of its continued development into a mature
22 product the community has moved one step closer of two steps in reaching
23 that goal. The next step is to compile a list of CFLAGS for all
24 architecture and publish them for adoption and conformance. Once this
25 has been done, bugzilla can depend upon their use in order to debug
26 problems.
28 With regards.
