Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Can DTP join EGit in Oxygen.2 respin?

It's good enough to just do a build. The API was deprecated for ten years already. After removing it for Oxygen (4.7) a simple build would have failed with a compile error.

Yes, I think that’s a good idea Stephan. One could possibly set up the build to fail when using deprecated API, in order to get an early warning. I’m not aware of a way of making Tycho do so though. I guess having a no-warnings policy and set the compiler up to fail on warnings is an option.

Best regards,
