5 In fact it's these situations that were the basis for me not to want to
6 return an error by the sandbox if it detects invalid accesses. The
7 developer/user should just be notified of the presence. If the installer
8 of the package doesn't consider it as a fatal error, but simple as a
9 notification of the state of the system, the merge should simply proceed
10 imho. I could add something which makes it possible to notify to sandbox
11 of predicted/expected failures, which in their turn are then not printed
12 to the regular user.
14 What do you think of this?
