Done. I have updated the jobs of antlib svn and antunit to use Java 8 to
build it.

I found this (live) page the other
day while looking at the Jenkins failure. But now that you mention it, I
don't remember how I landed up on that page. I don't see it linked in
the Jenkins job or some other place. But yes, I don't see it linked
anywhere in the Ant website. I'll start a new VOTE thread to retire this
project. I might need Jan's help here if/after the VOTE passes to
actually do some of the process involved in retiring projects.
