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

We should probably start planning on the removal of DTP now. It’s not clear it has the resources to even do builds going forward.

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.
