Subject Re: In shape for a 2.4.4 release?
Date Tue, 19 May 2015 19:59:09 GMT
If they require -incubating in the filename, does that mean it'll be in the
Maven coordinates as well?  If so, that's unfortunate since there are many
tools (like IntelliJ) that probably won't be able to automatically locate
the source jar.
