Is there a chance to fix 572 (HTML definition lists) soon? The suggested patch which extends the allowed tag list should be easy to apply.
@sbley, I updated description and your comment, thanks a lot!
For javadoc Checks ..... I could merge changes for that Checks from outside contributors, please prepare PR if you need that feature.
I (and our team members) will not focus on that Checks till they all completely reimplemented to use new parsing abilities of Checkstyle to parse javadoc by grammar.
If you do care about quicker reimplementing javadoc part of checkstyle please vote at https://t.co/kvs57tuPPK , please reshare it with your colleagues to let us know Checkstyle user's priorities. Update of all javadoc Checks is planned in "Update existing sun_style.xml to cover all rules from Sun Code Convention" project.
