Checkstyle Package XML should be in core library JAR #259
According to http://checkstyle.sourceforge.net/config.html#Packages, the package XML file should be in the root of the JAR providing the additional checks (sevntu-checks project) and is currently not. This would allow just the classname to be specified in the checks file like is done by the Eclipse plug-in.
