Package: alex
Version: 2.3.3-1
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream

Alex generated code compiles with warnings on big endian CPUs and we're
using it on code which we want to compile with -Werror.

I've logged a bug with upstream and submitted a patch:


When upstream releases a new version, we can package it and close
this bug.
