Wrong naming of rule: "switch" statements should have at least 3 "case" clauses

The name of the rule: “switch” statements should have at least 3 “case” clauses
was wrong.

The MISRA-C:2012 Rule 16.6, which is the base of this sonaqube rule is named as: Every switch statement shall have at least two switch-clauses.

Two, not “Three”.

Here is a compliant example from the MISRA document:

switch ( z )
case 1:
z = 2;
default: /* Compliant */
z = 0;

Hello @vokuit00,

This rule is tagged as based-on-misra, which means we took MISRA into consideration when designing this rule, but our goal was not to make a rules that 100% matches the MISRA specification.

Nevertheless, we agree that in this case, setting the limit to 3 is not a good idea, and we had already created a ticket to change that. You can follow its progress here: https://jira.sonarsource.com/browse/CPP-2437
