Subject RE: [io] throws Exception?
Date Sun, 23 Jun 2002 04:27:49 GMT
I can speak for Maven, since it's me using it :)

If the method currently throws Exception, and we change it to IOException 
for example, how does that break anyone?

RE: [io] throws Exception?



We have not released.  I would say do it, although I know I might regret
not deprecating somehow. 

Gump may have something to say about this, as there are currently
dependencies from:
commons-xo 
jakarta-turbine-3 
jakarta-turbine-maven 
jakarta-turbine-stratum 
jakarta-turbine-torque 
vindico 

I can speak for Vindico +1, but we should talk to the Turbine people.

+1 if we can keep Gump happy.

Scott
