RE: [] FindBugs

what we need is not a "best practice to use FindBugs" but some recommended best practice on "how to use FindBugs".
Should it be part of nightly builds?: Should developers use it? What are good default settings? How to share customized default settings in the team? How to mark false positives that have been investigated, such that they are not reported again (for anyone on the team)?
The last question is the one most near and dear to me, and I have requested a feature similar to API Tooling Problem Filters:
I understand that some improvements have been made along those lines but both requests are not quite done yet.

I have used FindBugs and was impressed by the high signal to noise ratio. You can also configure it to only report new issues that have been introduced since a certain baseline. That way, you can avoid having to look through false positives more than once.

Makes sense to me.
