Subject checkstyle-all.jar and dev.jar issues
Date Sat, 20 Dec 2008 11:25:05 GMT
Couple of issues have come up with the jars we ship in our lib folder.

Checkstyle-all.jar is LGPL based, so will have to be removed from the 

Even though a taskdef in our build.xml is dependent on checkstyle, the 
build still works without the jar. Ant simply prints a warning.

Was thinking of adding the jar to the get-deps target, however only 
checkstyle.jar (the one without dependencies) is available from maven 
repo's. Checkstyle itself depends on a further 5 dependencies, so I'm 
not sure we should add that to the get-deps task.

We can enhance the checkstyle task to notify Click developers about 
manually downloading and adding the checkstyle-all.jar to their 
classpath when building Click.

Alternatively another ant target could be added get-checkstyle.

The other issue is with dev.jar which doesn't have a license but I 
recall it was authored by Malcolm? Guess we can decompile the code and 
release it under Apache2.0?

kind regards
