Re: How to convince maintainer to use --as-needed?

I seek your advice regarding the best practice with using --as-needed.
The --as--needed flag is automatically added to package builds in Ubuntu. If you do not want your package to fail to build from source (and thus not be included in the Ubuntu GNU/Linux distribution), you will at least test your project builds with that linker flag.

That's not a very strong argument, to be honest.

Here are some flam^H^H^H^Hthreads that discuss both pros and cons of --as-needed:
