#588 Totals

Check (274)

It would be nice if you could get the ratio of the check fails to total checks performed. For example, instead of a bare "3" indicator, a "3/60 (5%)" would be much more neaningfull. This would allow to use checkstyle as an acceptance tool for documentation coverage (among others)

    This is not possible currently because it is really no clear what is the "successful run of the check". One and the same check may raise multiple warning s in one source file, other check may raise warning only on the first occurrence of the badly-styled code and raise it in other place after the first being fixed. But it is not possible to say that this place in code was possible warning but have no one.

    My suggestion is to use "not-increasing number of checkstyle warnings" as an acceptance indicator.
