Subject Re: Unexpected Warnings from Macro Use in 2.4
Date Fri, 07 Oct 2016 06:11:41 GMT
All syntax checks are done inside mod_macro.
I agree that changing the syntax would be cleaner, but that would 
probably take some time.
Until that, a warning is better than nothing, no? We could also raise 
the warning to an error but I suppose some peopel may complain about 
backward compatibility...
