Subject RE: Compatibility or non-bug question

Well, that's better than nothing. :)

In fact, those two bugs I've mentioned are the ones I'm most interested
in right now:

http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-1024
http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-2525

What to you think we should do to them?

Thank you.

 Vasily

We have a compatibility guideline [1].
And according this guideline we should discuss cases like yours one by
one.
