OK, I'm not sure how you were able to navigate your way to that page, but I'm glad you found it so I know the warning wasn't just with my environment.

I usually start at https://buildbot.wireshark.org/wireshark-master/waterfall and navigate my way from there.  So, for example, I when looking for warnings, I might navigate along this path for a somewhat recent build:

... but here the warnings are shown as 0, and there's nothing in the stdio log to indicate any warnings either, although I suspect this is intentional if warnings are being redirected elsewhere (stderr or a separate warnings file).

Good question.  I think it is, but maybe for a very old reason that nobody can remember?
