      Description

      The @Deprecated annotation is supposed to be ignored if it occurs on a package declaration in a package-info.java file. It usually is, unless a javadoc comment with an @deprecated tag also appears on the same package declaration. Consider this package-info.java file:

      ========================================
      /**
       * @deprecated This is a deprecated package.
       */
      @Deprecated
      package com.example.foobar;
      ========================================

      Compiling this results in the following:

      package-info.java:5: error: modifier deprecated not allowed here
      package com.example.foobar;
      ^
      1 error
