Subject Re: checkstyle??

Thanks, Michael.  I think it would be better to put this information on 
the wiki for test developers. The readme is targeted more toward TCK 
users. Test developers needs a lot of information that is not in the 
readme, but which we have tried to put on the wiki.  I can add some of 
the information that you provided in your email. What do you think?
