Description athompson 2013-04-05 22:21:21 UTC
Often (but not always), enum members are self explanatory so providing javadoc comments for them is a waste of time. An option to ignore enum members would be nice.

An even better approach may be to split up the "missing javadoc" hint into separate hints specific to the various class/member types. That way, you could also add a "missing javadoc" hint for package javadocs.

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
NetBeans IDE 8.2 Release Boss

I think this is still a good idea. I often look like a (bigger) idiot adding painfully obvious javadocs just to make the warnings go away.
