|Summary||0001720: Remove 'should' for 'makefile authors'|
Line 105283 says:
> Although make expands macros that do not exist to an empty string, makefile authors should be aware that it is not safe to assume that a macro which has not intentionally been set to a specific value will expand to an empty string for everyone who uses the makefile.
The part 'makefile authors should be aware that' does not add anything to the sentence.
|Desired Action||Remove 'makefile authors should be aware that'.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Same topic, line 105388: 'It is important to be careful' is redundant.
If it weren't important, it wouldn't be included in this standard.
The word 'careful' is too unspecific to be actionable.
