Subject [GitHub] ant-ivy issue #57: fix last inconsistencies in generics
Date Sun, 06 Aug 2017 22:11:49 GMT
Github user nlalevee commented on the issue:
    @twogee, you have looked into the open sources softwares that use Ivy, but Ivy is under
the ASL, not the GPL, it might be used in some closed, commercial products :)
    So we cannot know for sure that we won't break softwares by changing that part of the
    The hierarchy of the classes of the DependencyResolver is not of the best design, it would
have been great to have more composition than inheritance. But that's we have. So unless we
want to break things, rewrite things and make an Ivy3, I think we should stick with it.
    To move forward, I suggest that this PR doesn't break the API at all. And if you still
think DependencyResolver deserve a probably-safe API break, you're welcomed to discuss it
on ant-dev so we can get a consensus.
