Hi, What if the CS* comments are removed in trunk, so the committers are happy, but accepted in the branch, so Glenn can work as he wants to? Not a perfect solution, but maybe an acceptable compromise, as long as somebody removes the comments prior to merging the branch back into trunk?

I understand this produces an unacceptable working mode for you. I can live with that, and we can review the CHECKSTYLE comments later in an effort to make further improvements. I would like to hear Jeremias' comment on the removal of the deprecated methods. Deprecated methods are a fact of life. Simon -- Simon Pepping home page: http://www.leverkruid.eu
