> without any additional context, it's hard to figure out what we're talking about or why.
The site for Findbugs itself only ever talks about its own license, which is LGPL.
> I think what we're getting at is that we use the fully qualified SupressWarnings instead
of the newer SuppressFBWarnings because we rely on the [cleanroom ASL reimplementation of
findbugs annotations|https://github.com/stephenc/findbugs-annotations].
> We should clarify that and provide some links.
