Subject Robert Muir thinks we should stop supporting Sun/Oracle JDK 1.5 on branch_3x
Date Fri, 15 Apr 2011 13:15:24 GMT
As a result of Robert Muir's r1092398 commit on branch_3x (the Latvian analysis stuff), the
build is now broken under Sun/Oracle JDK 1.5:

  [javadoc] C:\svn\lucene\dev\branches\branch_3x\lucene\contrib\analyzers\common\src\java\org\apache\lucene\analysis\lv\
warning - Tag @link: reference not found: org.apache.lucene.analysis.util.ReusableAnalyzerBase.TokenStreamComponents
  [javadoc] 5 warnings

C:\svn\lucene\dev\branches\branch_3x\lucene\build.xml:217: The following error occurred while
executing this line:
C:\svn\lucene\dev\branches\branch_3x\lucene\common-build.xml:813: Javadocs warnings were found!

Needless to say, I disagree vehemently with Robert.

I think Robert should fix this or his commit should be reverted.

I'm interested in hearing other opinions on this.
