Hi All,
           Following is the update on the type annotation work on javadoc

1) The output location has been fixed for receiver annotation and a new 
unit test has been implemented to test the output. I have used the 
receiver annotations usage examples from the 
test/tools/javac/typeAnnotations to implement this test. We can 
replicate this test for other type annotation changes related to 
javadoc. I am currently working on the location fix for array annotation 
and a unit test. I am targeting to get the code ready for review by end 
of this week.

2) For repeating annotations, I have filed a bug, JDK-8003654, for an 
update to the javadoc tool. The javadoc tool needs to determine if an 
annotation is explicitly present in the tree so that this information 
can be used by the doclet to display the repeating annotation correctly 
without the container.
