Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6592) Update the version of ant which we tell new developers to use.
Date Tue, 10 Jun 2014 13:24:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6592?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14026428#comment-14026428

Kim Haase commented on DERBY-6592:
----------------------------------

I just found another out-of-date link on the DITA page, http://db.apache.org/derby/manuals/dita.html.
The 5th bullet links to a chapter in the 1.1 version of the Subversion docs -- which are now
up to version 1.7. It might be better to make the link go to the top-level http://svnbook.red-bean.com/
and make the text more precise: "more information is in the Properties section of the Subversion
documentation". The section has moved from Chapter 7 to Chapter 3 over the years, and may
continue to migrate.

> The top level BUILDING.html page tells users to grab ant version 1.7.0 or higher. I don't
know whether that version still works. I have been using version 1.9.2 for a long time. I
see no harm in changing the instructions to tell new developers to grab ant version 1.9.2.
I think it's a good idea to update these instructions regularly.
