      Description

      Because it is just impossible to compute the technical debt ratio on new code (SONAR-5876) using complexity as the size metric, we should be consistent and remove the possibility to compute the technical debt ratio based on this metric.

      This means:

      • Dropping the "sonar.technicalDebt.sizeMetric" property and all its references
      • Dropping the "sizeMetric" property of the "languageSpecificParameters" property set and all its references
      • Updating the description of the "sonar.technicalDebt.developmentCost" to:

        Cost to develop one line of code (LOC). Example: if the cost to develop 1 LOC has been estimated at 30 minutes, then the value of this property would be 30.

      • Update the computation of the technical debt ratio metric to rely only on LOC
