    Removing test redundant for org.apache.commons.lang3.StringUtilsTest.testIsEmpty

    We are researchers working on identifying redundant tests in a test suite. Our analysis
of finding redundant tests involve each test's dynamic code coverage and their potential fault-detection
    Through our analysis, we found that the tests org.apache.commons.lang3.StringUtilsTest.testIsEmpty,
org.apache.commons.lang3.StringUtilsTrimEmptyTest.testIsEmpty are redundant with respect to
one another. In this pull request, we are proposing to keep only the test org.apache.commons.lang3.StringUtilsTest.testIsEmpty
while adding @Ignore annotations to the remaining test. However, as we believe these tests
are identical, any one of them can be kept while skipping the remaining test.
    If you do not believe any of these tests should be ignored, we would greatly appreciate
it if you could follow up on this pull request and let us know your reasons.
