When "checkstyling" files from two different folder
trees, with the 'requirePackageHtml' option turned on,
CheckStyle "incorrectly" reports a
missing 'package.html' if the same package is
represented in both trees.
Ok, an example will help. Here is a simple tree:
As you can see, JUnit test cases are separated in a
distinct folder to make it even easier to exclude them
from the build if necessary... but
the 'TestSampleClass' is in the same 'com.sample'
package as 'SampleClass'. And this package already has
a 'package.html' file.
This is where CheckStyle "incorrectly" reports a
missing 'package.html'... I know, this is not really a
major problem... but I wanted to let you know!
