[URLyBird] Javadoc comments

Hello.

My specification says:
"... javadoc style comments must be used for each element of the public interface of each class."

So I should have javadoc comments for public methods (and variables if any).
But should I write javadocs for protected methods and variables?

Best regards

I provide Javadoc comments for everything except some datamembers (mostly private ones).
The generated Javadoc I limit to public only to save a bit of space.
