I followed the official Mojo usage instructions for configuring findbugs-maven-plugin to ignore:
code UR bugs
But no matter how I wrote findbugs-exclude-filters.xml, or what I put in <configuration> or where I put the <plugin> snippet, or called the different goals (findbugs:findbugs, findbugs:check), every time, BOTH of these filters were ignored by FindBugs, and the resulting target/findBugsXml.xml included results for thrift packages (sigh), and UR bugs (double sigh).
As Kohsuke notes, FindBugs seems to be incompatible with Maven 3. Can we get this plugin working again?
