There are probably a LOT of people using Windows that, like I normally do,
make changes or corrections to local copies of Epics configurations . . . .
and then do it again and again and again on other systems when a fresh
deployment of everything is grabbed or someone uses a different version of a
Microsoft compiler.

Since Base is up on Github, would that be the preferred location to be
submit such changes? ('cause I would like expected and accepted warning
messages to go away as much as the next person.)

Hi Mark,

Done (committed to the 3.14 branch from where it will get merged into the
other branches). Thanks for pushing for that.

None of the core developers have much love of working on Windows, so as an
EPICS platform it may be a somewhat neglected child. If someone with
suitable expertise wanted to help clean up the code-base I don't think we
would refuse any offers of help.
