Redundant overriding method

Reports redundant overriding declarations.

An override can be omitted if it does not modify the inherited signature semantics, for example, by changing visibility.


open class Foo { open fun singleExpression() { } } class Bar : Foo() { override fun singleExpression() = super.singleExpression() }

After the quick-fix is applied:

class Bar : Foo() { }
