let undeclared exceptions continue unchecked
The recent modifications regarding checked exceptions have eliminated the need for several try/catch blocks. This commit removes the blocks that no longer serve a purpose.
The attachment clj949-patch-v2-ignore-whitespace.txt is not the intended patch. It was created to be slightly easier to read and review that clj949-patch-v2.txt. It was created by ignoring white space changes using 'git diff -w ...'
Moving to Vetted for re-screening.
Got it, Alex. My program for prescreening patches now includes some output that tells me which patches have warnings when they are applied with the "git am ..." command. For each of those, it gives a different status depending upon how far the ticket is in the workflow: "fix now" for patches on tickets that are already Vetted and scheduled for the next release, "fix soon" for tickets that are only Vetted, and "fix later" for all pre-Vetted tickets.
Thus even though there are a couple dozen patches with these warnings now, almost all of them are for pre-Vetted tickets, so not urgent. I can be reminded of the patches needing cleaning-up gradually, as they are Vetted or I have spare time.
Honestly, I can't say I understood all the details of what the warning meant. Seeing your explanation, it doesn't seem like a big deal but it certainly seems better to clean up the whitespace as we patch. Warnings are something that slows down evaluation of the patch b/c you have to understand whether the warning is ok, so in general I'd prefer not to see them.
Alex, do you know whether you will want all screened patches to be free of trailing whitespace warnings, and other such whitespace warnings?
If so, I can try to be proactive in finding and fixing such patches before you come across them. It is a small change to my code for checking whether patches are prescreened, to also check whether they have these warnings when the patch is applied.
Alternately, it is also easy to disable trailing whitespace warnings in git. If you think it is OK for patches to add lines with trailing whitespace, I can document that on the wiki.
