Damn, I probably filed a duplicate then.

Not to worry, I can do this -- run a task, change a diaper, run a
task, change a diaper. Good we have long-running targets.

I'll check everything locally first and once checked we can substitute
on jenkins. I don't think there will be any difference other than
unexpected things like different memory requirements (OOMs, permgens).

Definitely not the early ones because they were buggy. 1.8.3 seems
relatively fresh (February 29th, 2012), so I'd say 1.8.2 (2010-12-20)?
This is a long delay from 1.8.2 to 1.8.3... just peeked at the rel.
notes and there are issues that could affect us:

I also don't object to just saying 1.8.3 is the minimum required
version. It's the trunk after all -- it'll be a month or two (ehm)
before it is released so 1.8.3 will be a de-facto standard?
