So it turns out that trove just has this rule disabled.  At least I now know more about how this stuff works, I guess.  Sorry for the confusion.

I know there are at least 30 other violations of this rule just within trove, and I imagine larger projects probably have more.  I'd hate to be the target of all the ire that sudden rejections of every commit would cause.  Do we have a way to make it off by default for some period to let the projects all clean themselves up then turn it on by default after that?
