@SuppressWarnings("PMD.UnusedLocalVariable") // Remove me when the TODO is fixed 

The TODO was to finish the implementation which will use the local variable.

Reason I ask, is because we should have PMD reports complain, after all it is unfinished code that should stick out. Second the @SuppressWarning identifier is not found and eclipse complains. Third there's already a TODO there along with a JIRA issue for this particular case.
