Thanks for your interest, but yeah, obviously you didn't take a look at
the project before diving head on into bikeshedding patches (mostly).

But that's ok, everybody has to learn, you are. This doesn't mean you
have to stop there, just get back on it and avoid those kind of
“patching what compiler warnings say” while taking in mind what the
project you're patching is about and how it's written (and more
precisely why).
