+ <para>
+ Findbugs is used to detect common bugs pattern. As Javadoc, it is checked during
+ the precommit build up on Apache's Jenkins, and as with Javadoc, please fix them.
+ You can run findbugs locally with 'mvn findbugs:findbugs': it will generate the
+ findbugs files locally. Sometimes, you may have to write code smarter than
+ Findbugs. You can annotate your code to tell Findbugs you know what you're
+ doing, by annotating your class with:
+ <programlisting>@edu.umd.cs.findbugs.annotations.SuppressWarnings(
+ justification="I know what I'm doing")</programlisting>
+ </para>
+ <para>
+ Note that we're using the apache licensed version of the annotations.
