Subject P4 Tasks and ORO
Date Mon, 06 Sep 2010 09:55:06 GMT

ORO is on its way to become retired inside the Apache Attic and Regexp
will likely follow it in a few months time.

Apart from our own regexp-engine-abstraction-layer the only dependencies
on either we have is inside the P4 tasks that use ORO's Perl5Util rather
than plain regular expressions.

At first glance it shouldn't be too dificult to replace the ORO usage
with our own layer or even with direct calls to java.util.regex (we
require Java 1.4 by now anyway).

But before I change code that I cannot test myself: is anybody out there
who uses the tasks and would be willing to build and test a modified
trunk version of Ant if I removed the ORO dependency?
