Re: [cdt-dev] Why are there 2 places to set up launch modes for codan checkers?

Another question:

Having this second page for setting launching modes at the project
level is not consistent with the Codan preference pages at the
workspace level.

At workspace level there is no such preference page (I'm referring to
the screenshot in my previous e-mail.) Why having it only at project
level?

Thanks,
