Hi all,

Since I use the last version of Fedora 26 with gcc-7.1.1, I have these warnings (see output.txt file)

We could add -Wimplicit-fallthrough=0 to Makefile ? it will disable the fallthrough of the coed.

What do you think about that ? What's your feedback on this option and can we use it in the case of CPython ?

Thank you

It seems to me that by default the compiler recognizes a wide variety of "falls through" comments. Thus we need just add missed comments.

There are warnings emitted when compile imported third-party code. We should ask Stefan for adding "falls through" comments in his libmpdec. And either compile expat with -Wimplicit-fallthrough=0, or wait until warnings will be fixed in upstream, or remove the bundled copy of expat.

It's a useful warning, but I find it annoying to add 20 "fall through" comments. I may add a pragma at some point.

Hmm, that took about 20 min to commit a 3 line diff.  Now I'm watching the buildbots...

St├ęphane, if you want the libmpdec change cherry picked and are willing to do the (significant) work of backporting, I'll merge it.
