Code Recommenders still uses Guava 15 and can't switch without doing a
major release, as Guava classes like ImmutableList and Optional are
unfortunately part of our public API. Switching to a new major version
of Guava would hence mean forcing all our clients to also switch, which
may not be possible.

A major release, possibly moving from Guava Optional to Java 8 Optional
in our public APIs, would eliminate this problem for good, but we don't
have the resources to do that for 2018-09.

Best wishes,


Here I might be able to help. That recommenders uses old guava has caused me a bit of headache in my downstream builds and I've been carrying some patches against recommenders for a while -- let me clean up the patches that we are carrying downstream and I will file a bug where we can discuss it further -- how does that sound?

Sorry for replying to myself. I filed two bugs to talk about it:

It would be nice if someone from recommenders checks up what's up with it's gerrit verifications jobs.
