Thanks for the report!

Yes, I know there are tons of warnings. Most of them probably would be
an easy job for somebody new to C and I hope somebody will step forward
working on them, but after the release. This is not the "cleanup the dust
of eons" release. This is the "pick up all the patches floating around"
release, which is pretty much what I wanted to do. I see my role in lcdproc
development mostly reviewing and merging patches. I don't plan many
original contributions and probably won't do more cleanup then necessary
for release.

That said, I'm happy to see all the recent activity with people submitting
issues and pull requests and writing mails. I have lcdproc related
correspondence almost every day now. I think there is a good chance
that lcdproc development finally gets back to a steady pace.
