Subject Re: Add ".settings" to svn:ignore on root Nutch folder?

Ok, PMD seems like a good idea. I've added it to the build file. Unused 
code detection shows a few catches (javacc-generated classes need to be 
ignored because they contain a lot of junk), but unfortunately it also 
displays false positives such as in:   429   {Avoid unused private fields such as 

This field is private but is used in an outside class (through a 
synthetic accessor I presume, so a simple syntax tree analysis PMD does 
is insufficient to catch it).

These things would need to be marked in the code as ignorable... Do you 
want me to create a JIRA issue for this, Doug? Or should we drop the 
subject? Oh, I forgot to say this: PMD's jars add a minimum of 1MB to 
the codebase (Xerces can be reused).
