The PMD Ant task has a minimumPriority option that allows the caller to turn off the lower priority (higher number) warnings. This is desirable as many of the level 4 and 5 warnings don’t have enough value to make fixing them worth the effort. The Gradle task that wraps the Ant Task doesn’t support this option.
I have the fix done for this change, and I have signed the CLA, I just need to know if this requires a JIRA Ticket. Or can I just submit the pull request.
