Subject Re: [LANG] Drop Ant build?
Date Tue, 20 Oct 2015 06:32:23 GMT
These are all packages in currently in Debian:

https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=libcommons

Checking the unstable distribution (the most recently updated package),
these are the packages I saw still depending on ant to build
(Build-Depends):

* libcommons-cli-java 1.3.1-2:
https://sources.debian.net/src/libcommons-cli-java/1.3.1-2/debian/control/
* libcommons-codec-java 1.10-1:
https://sources.debian.net/src/libcommons-codec-java/1.10-1/debian/control/
* libcommons-collections-java 2.1.1-10:
https://sources.debian.net/src/libcommons-collections-java/2.1.1-10/debian/control/
* libcommons-collections3-java 3.2.1-8:
https://sources.debian.net/src/libcommons-collections3-java/3.2.1-8/debian/control/
* libcommons-compress-java 1.10-1:
https://sources.debian.net/src/libcommons-compress-java/1.10-1/debian/control/
* libcommons-digester-java 1.8.1-4:
https://sources.debian.net/src/libcommons-digester-java/1.8.1-4/debian/control/
* libcommons-el-java 1.0-8:
https://sources.debian.net/src/libcommons-el-java/1.0-8/debian/control/
* libcommons-lang-java 2.6-5:
https://sources.debian.net/src/libcommons-lang-java/2.6-5/debian/control/
* libcommons-launcher-java 1.1-8:
https://sources.debian.net/src/libcommons-launcher-java/1.1-8/debian/control/
* libcommons-modeler-java 2.0.1-7:
https://sources.debian.net/src/libcommons-modeler-java/2.0.1-7/debian/control/
* libcommons-net-java 3.3-2:
https://sources.debian.net/src/libcommons-net-java/3.3-2/debian/control/
* libcommons-net2-java 2.2-2:
https://sources.debian.net/src/libcommons-net2-java/2.2-2/debian/control/
* libcommons-validator-java 1:1.4.1-1:
https://sources.debian.net/src/libcommons-validator-java/1:1.4.1-1/debian/control/

Double check would be good, since I could missed any. I think most are old
versions, and given the package naming in Debian are still there. How many
components do actually still use Ant as build system?
