Summary     : Find bugs in Java code
Description :

Update Information:

This update removes the versioned Javadoc directories from the FindBugs packages - findbugs, findbugs-bcel, findbugs-contrib, and jFormatString.

Updating from old versions of these packages should succeed without file conflicts, as the -javadoc packages employ the workaround described here:


However, downgrading from these new packages will fail due to conflicts. The solution in that case is to remove the -javadoc packages before downgrading, and reinstall them afterwards.
