The patch corresponding to attachment 34759 against the code from 3.15-final

as stated in the version field.
The version field is sometimes updated when an unfixed bug is still present in
a later build, so it's better to explicitly state in a comment what the base
rev for a file is. Even better is to submit a patch, which includes the rev if
the patch was generated by Subversion.
It's probably a good idea to check out trunk anyways so that you can open the
project in Eclipse or other IDE, make your changes, and know immediately
whether there are compile-time errors with your changes.

You can perform a sparse svn checkout of POI if you don't want to wait the 10
minutes it takes to check out the trunk or one of the release tags. You could
also save the original file and modified file and use any diffing program to
generate a patch file (Linux/Mac: diff, Windows: TortoiseSVN, TortoiseGit)

This is the part that I am confused about. How does the addition of an empty
endSheet() method make it easier for someone to use POI? Did I correctly
receive your patch file? Was there really only an addition of 3 lines?

The only other references I see to endSheet within the POI source code and
website is in BigGridDemo. Is this the inspiration for this bug?

I am genuinely interested in trying to make POI easier for people to use, but
I'm not convinced that the contributions so far accomplish that. Am I missing
some other files that have some useful behavior when the endSheet() event is
