Subject [GitHub] ant-ivy issue #57: fix last inconsistencies in generics
Date Mon, 07 Aug 2017 06:36:45 GMT
Github user twogee commented on the issue:
    @nlalevee, we already broke a few things by going Java 7 (and gained native symlinks 😉).
For more examples, look at commons-lang3 breaking off commons-text and introducing escapeHtml3
and escapeHtml4 instead of escapeHtml -- all without changing a major version. Pointing to
some hypothetical closed code is a poor excuse -- as if commercial vendors (or their customers)
have no QA and expect the dependencies to be drop-ins every time. I will present the argument
on ant-dev in a more coherent form later.
