Subject [GitHub] cloudstack pull request: CLOUDSTACK-9251: Fix issue in scale VM to...

Github user jburwell commented on the pull request:
    I am confused as to the issue at this point.  Building the PR using ``mvn clean install
findbugs:check`` passes.  It appears that commit reversions have addressed the issues.  Assuming
I ran the appropriate, I don't see why static analysis should be blocking the progress of
this PR.
    @koushik-das ``@SuppressWarnings`` will hide the issue forever because, in reality, we
will never come back to it.  Therefore, it should never be used if we intend for static analysis
to be useful/valuable practice
    @swill Speaking generally, my opinion is that the suggestion does not work.  The point
of static analysis is to protect the integrity of the codebase.  If a patch introduces a new
issue, it shouldn't be accepted until the issue is fixed.  The only exception to this rule
is that we determine the rule is no longer valuable and stop checking it.  We only gain value
from static analysis if we are disciplined about addressing the issues found rather than taking
the most expedient path to get a pass.
