One can run the pmd checks by 'ant pmd'. It produces file with html 
report in build directory. It covers core nutch and plugins.
Currently it uses unusedcode ruleset checks only but one can uncomment 
other rulesets in build.xml (or add another ones according to pmd 

I would like to  add cross-referenced source so report is easier to read 
in near feature.
I have two additional questions for developers:
1) Should we check test sources with pmd?
2) We do have oro 2-0.7 in dependencies (I think urlfilter and similar 
things). PMD requires oro - 2.0.8. Do you think we can upgrade (as far 
as I know 2.0.7 and 2.0.8 should be compatible)? We would have only one 
oro jar than.

So happy PMD-ing,
