      Description

      A feature in the works for JDK 8 is repeating annotations:

      JEP 120: Repeating Annotations http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/120

      This will impact annotation processing. For example, given an annotation processor that processes the annotation @Foo, it will not trigger on a declaration annotated with:

      @Foo
      @Foo

      We need to add clarifications and processing support related to this.
