Severity - Fail

Check method - Here


The HasValidPreviousVersionAttribute check ensures that, if there is a piece of versioning documentation present explaining what the previous version of a method or constructor was, the FromVersion is correct.

The FromVersion for a PreviousVersion attribute should be set to the current milestone of development, with PreviousVersion attributes being removed at the end of the milestone in preparation for the next.

If a PreviousVersion attribute has not been tidied up, it will be flagged by this check and should be removed in the Pull Request which captures it.

If a PreviousVersion attribute has been added in that Pull Request, the FromVersion should match the current development milestone cycle.
