it would be nice if there would be an option in a future release of this Policy which enables us to define that overriden members (from virtual or abstract bases) do not need to be commented.

It's annoying for my developers to comment on members already documented in the base class

Thank you!

I have implemented a "Check Override Elements" option in the policy. It is on by default (so the default behavior hasn't changed), but when you uncheck it, methods that have the override keyword specified won't be checked any longer.

Currently only in source control.

Release 1.3 has this feature enabled. Please download and check to see that it works to your liking.

Note: the Advanced tab in the configuration dialog is currently intentionally empty.

Hi Chris,

I'll test that tomorrow when I'm @ work and will report to you if it works as expected. Thank you for the quick implementation.

Sorry Chris, I forgott to post my usage-experience. So far it's working, we had no problems with the new feature.

Thank you!
