With 10.10 I start getting the following warnings:

Warning: ValueConv FileNumber: Found = in conditional, should be == - my_image.jpg

$exiftool -m my_image.jpg -p '${FileName}|${description}'
my_image.jpg|
Warning: ValueConv FileNumber: Found = in conditional, should be == - my_image.jpg

Is it about "File Number" tag?

$exiftool -filenumber my_image.jpg
File Number                     : 100-8798

$exiftool -filenumber= my_image.jpg
Warning: Can't delete Permanent tag Canon:FileNumber
Nothing to do.

What is the purpose of the warning? How to heal my images? Do I want to heal them?

Thank you for your time and insight.

Thanks for this report.  You may safely ignore this warning.  It is an ExifTool problem that will be fixed in version 10.12.
