davidi:yogi: "one problem that often comes up with auditing and best practices features are the exceptions where you want to say, "yeah, yeah, i know, this line is really ok. please stop warning me about it." is there a way to flag a particular instance of a model audit to be ignored, or do you need to turn off the audit for the whole project?" - Rich - answers - with source code you can put comments, for model audits - not yet

jkaster: To add to Rich’s answer about model audits... It’s actually possible to exclude a particular model element.

jkaster: Much like a comment in source code, you can add some property to a particular model element (for example, stereotype),
