It appears that a problem with ant 1.7.1 can potentially impact the
open jdk builds, see
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=43114 for more
The potential for missing package-info.class files seems high, and the
sources run into this problem.
Since I hate to move backwards (to 1.7.0) I'd like to propose that the
jdk builds move
to ant 1.8.0 as soon as possible, and that the sanity check be changed
to require 1.8.0.
(openjdk6, openjdk7 and jdk7).
While I'm there, I'd like to also advance the 'make' version required
I suspect that the make 3.81 requirement is no big deal for the Linux
people, but may
complicate lives a little for Windows and Solaris people.
The ant 1.8.0 issue may be more complicated for Linux users, since it
likely will not
be available in rpm/deb package form right away, but the download and
install is trivial:
Sorry about this disturbance, but this seems like the best course.
