Overlap between S112 and CA2201

Rule S112 is useful rule, helping developers to use the appropriate exceptions. For .NET hower, Microsoft’s CA2201 seems to be doing (more or less), the same thing.

Are you aware of that?

Furthermore, it might be worth to mention CA2201 in RSPEC, so that developers can disable one of them, to prevent double reports on issues.


Hi @Corniel, sorry for the delay.

The two rules indeed seem to be identical. I made the .NET product manager aware of it; He will take a decision on what to do.
