Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-1406) official support for compiling on GWT 2.8

Gilles commented on MATH-1406:


But please post about this on the "dev" ML, explaining why these changes or new dependencies
are necessary.

A big issue is that a new major version of CM has been under development for a long time (in
the "master" branch of the git repository). On the one hand, it contains enhancements and
bug fixes, but on the other, it has become largely unsupported (cf. discussions on the "dev"
I'd be wary to enlarge the audience of CM v3.6.1 (which is also unsupported) and getting duplicate
bug reports; IMHO, it would be better to work
* on the new Commons components that replace some of the CM functionality (see e.g. [Commons
RNG|] and
* on how to modularize the development version of Commons Math (so as to release the supported

Hence I'd suggest that you look at the contents of the "master" branch and base your proposal
on it.
There are possibly other alternatives; but until now, no active contributors have stepped
up to provide actual work.
