Re: [opensuse-packaging] Re: [opensuse-factory] Why has -fstack-clash-protection been added to optflags?

Richard.
wxWidgets is very sensitive see:

It's a pity I didn't choose gcc7 then but audacity appears to be very popular in our distribution.
Another question, logic dictates that a package has to actually build with -fstack-clash-protection to benefit from it? Doesn't this mean that all 42.3 packages need to rebuild?
BTW packman does connect to 42.3:Update, audacity fails to build there.
