If you enable findbugs in the build ( execute.findbugs=true ) and run it
on the command line ( ant findbugs ) you should get a report with about
1000 failures in it. Each one needs to be looked at to figure out if it
is valid or not.

If it is valid, then a fix is required.

If it is invalid, then it needs to be added to
res/findbugs/filter-false-positives.xml

I suggest you tackle them in small batches (or even one at a time) and
check you analysis with the community before going too far.

It makes sense to start with the high priority ones first.

Do keep in mind that all of the remaining issues are all low confidence
so it is likely that the majority will be false positives.

You can also do this in an IDE. I use Eclipse and in the past I have
used the FindBugs plug-in. I'm currently evaluating switching to SpotBugs.

HTH,

Mark
