Subject Re: proposal for maven-archetype to switch to dom4j 2.1.1 (and Java 8)
Date Mon, 03 Jun 2019 14:59:22 GMT
First of all, this PR was create because of vulnerability CVE-2018-1000632.
Vulner or non-vulnerability, the version of javac for dom4j:1.6.1 is not an
argument for me.
If some code was broken in that version, it would be an argument. But it is
not an argument to infinitely grow versions only because somebody in CVE
wants to. This really is pushing hard to sell technologies and not a common
sense.
