It’s clear that the interface to findbugs is an abstraction of the findbugs ant task, which I can see being helpful in the future where maybe the ant task isn’t being used. But in the end, it’ll always be findbugs and findbugs has certain features which are not implemented in the current plugin. Is this an oversight or just a matter of time? Either way, can a bug be created? Would a pull request be accepted that included additional attribute/elements?
The ones commonly used would be: effort, visitors, omitVisitors, excludeFilters, includeFilters, reportLevel. effort and reportLevel are essentially enums. visitors and omitVisitors are strings, and excludesFilters/includeFilters point to a single file.
