Subject [VOTE] Sunsetting support for Java 8
Date Sun, 25 Jun 2017 15:30:22 GMT
Please vote on the following proposed policy for supported platforms. 
The polls close at 5:00 pm San Francisco time on Sunday July 9.

A) The 10.14 release notes will tell users that 10.14 is the last 
release which supports Java 8. Note that we have already sunsetted 
support for Java 7.

B) The 10.15 release will support Java 9 and higher. After releasing 
10.14, the development trunk will no longer support Java 8.

C) We expect that maintenance releases on a branch will continue to 
support the same Java versions as the initial feature release cut from 
that branch.

Adopting this policy would result in the following changes to the 10.15 

I) Removing build support for Java 8.

II) Purging user doc references to Java 8.
