Subject [jira] [Created] (AURORA-110) Introduce "strict mode" for the aurora client
Date Fri, 24 Jan 2014 19:34:38 GMT
Kevin Sweeney created AURORA-110:

             Summary: Introduce "strict mode" for the aurora client
                 Key: AURORA-110
             Project: Aurora
          Issue Type: Story
          Components: Client
            Reporter: Kevin Sweeney
            Priority: Minor

Right now our deprecation cycles are generally accompanied by printing a (sometimes ominous)
warning message to the screen for a time period, and then releasing a backwards incompatible
client that will cause breakage. Introduce a "strict mode" for the client that fails rather
than warns when a known-deprecated feature is used.
It's a better user experience than finding out (via a client error) that a client no longer
supports a feature you relied on and would allow us a predictable-but-fair deprecation cycle
- e.g. the "quick fix" is always to remove the --strict flag. For inspiration see Python's
_future_ and gcc's -Werror.
