Subject Re: [compress] Planning 1.8 Release
Date Thu, 27 Feb 2014 12:44:16 GMT
Hello Stefan,

the project reports look good to me. Some package have low test coverage
but I think you've already said that it's pretty hard to write tests for
this areas of the code. PMD shows four violations. The first three look
like they can be fixed easily.
