I think the warning "convert periods to intervals for accuracy" is also spurious. What period am I supposed to convert?
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
I actually started removing those messages here and there. It's more annoying than helpful. The approximate computation with periods is stated in the docs in multiple places, so people who use those should be already aware of pitfalls.
Given that for a bulk of arithmetic operations with shorter periods is exact and that we currently use surpressWarnings to hide these warnings in a bunch of places, maintaining these warnings appears wrong to me.
So, unless you object I am removing them and adding methods for some arithmetic operations with periods which currently throw errors.
