      Description

      Version 3.0.0 still uses checkstyle 6.18.

       

      The google_checks.xml of 6.18 contains a rule that says "com.google" imports must be first. This was removed in 2016 yet the latest version of checkstyle (3.0.0 of January 2018) still says I should use that version of 2016 which has the dummy rule that com.google imports should come first.

       

      I know it's overridable, but the bottom line is that checkstyle relies on an really outdated version of checkstyle which has total nonsense in it.
