  1. Community comments
    1. Implement a solution for deprecating warnings like:
      • "WARNING: Make sure you understand the semantics of --tls-remote before using it (see the man page)."
      • "NOTE: the current --script-security setting may allow this configuration to call user-defined scripts"
      • Suggestion: Introduce a new configure option to allow filtering of different start-up warnings.
        • Do not remove all messages by one entry, but add a possibility to filter each message separately. This way newer warnings will be shown and needs to be disabled explicitly.
