Hi Thomas

A while back I made changes to the Maven build so that it produces the
same output as the Ant build. The should mean that we can get rid of the
old Ant build if we want to.

One thing that I'd like to do is to restructure the source code into
several separate Maven modules, so that there is a specific module for
commons-logging-api. The current setup is error prone, as it is
extracting certain files from certain archives and then repackaging them
again, with the risk of loosing meta data like MANIFEST.MF.

I'm -1 on this change. I don't see any reason to do it. We don't need
features from a more recent Java version in commons-logging. As others
have said: most users of commons-logging are old and older apps.

Are there patches available for these issues?
Which issues are we talking about?
