anyone else using spotless gradle plugin with ktlint? and finding that it doesn’t seem to actually check the same things at ktlint? i.e. if i run
gradle spotlessCheck
i get no issues, but i get a lot when i run

I know when we made a breaking API change in ktlint a couple releases ago, Spotless broke and needed updating but I don't know if Spotless ever put up a PR to fix it
Also just FYI there is a #ktlint channel. It's not super active, but I have notifications on for that channel so we might be a bit faster to respond

thanks! yeah, they did supposedly get it fixed it’s strange because it will definitely flag some errors, but then there’s a whole host of other ones that it ignores (i.e. doesn’t flag or remove extraneous semicolons)
