Description / Features
Compute a new metric named violation density. This is almost the opposite of rule compliance metric. Rule compliance metric formula is: max(0, 100 - weighted_violations / Lines of code * 100). Violation density metric formula is: weighted_violations / Lines of code * 100. The main advantage is that bad projects can always be compared (because the formula allow to exceed 100% while rule compliance can never be under 0%).
