FTBFS with -Werror=format-security
Submitted by Thibaut Paumard
Created attachment 197574 printf(msg) -> printf("%s", msg)
I am the Debian maintainer for gimp-gap (2.6.0).
Several Linux distribution (including Debian) are starting to compile everything with -Werror=format-security by default. This C flag helps catching security issues with printf().
This causes gimp-gap building to fail (on purpose) on calls such as "printf(msg)" (actually, most calls look like "g_message(msg)").
I have prepared a patch where all these calls are changed to "printf("%s", msg)", which is safer and passes the compiler tests.
Best regards, Thibaut.
