Honestly, I only wanted to make public what I believe is the case
anyway. Whether the branch is alive or not pnly depends on whether
people push changes to it. While preparing the last 1.9.x release I
realized there have been almost no changes since the last release - and
we've had an additional 1.10.x release without a new 1.9.x release in

To me it looks as if the branch wasn't really alive anyway.

This seems true, if a project is stuck with Java 5 to 7 then it probably
uses Ant.
