Hi Scala community,
I have noticed that type aliases do not ‘inherit’ the scaladocs of the types they alias. This is an issue I have encountered when constructing ‘uber’ imports that include type aliases for different classes scattered throughout the codebase. I think it would be a nice feature if the scaladoc from the aliased type were associated with the type alias as well.
I guess my initial questions would be:
- Is there a technical reason why this has not been done before?
- Do people think this would be a worthwhile thing to do and would anyone object if I attempted this?
