Re: [eclipse.org-planning-council] 2018-12 Respin?

I am with Ed here.

We have many packages that work and got a +1. We should not put more work on them to retest everything after the respin.

As far as I understand the problem, simply telling the Mylyn (and other projects broken by JAXB) users to use Java 8 instead of Java 11 should do the trick for now. That information should be placed on the 2018-12 landing page and spread via tweets.

My sense is that while this is a super annoying problem, we should not
assume that everyone necessary is available last minute right before the
holiday season to deal with respinning and retesting along with a
delayed release.   It's extremely bad timing for this time of the year.

This post on the forum suggests the problem is more wide spread than has
currently been identified:


As such, I'm doubtful a respin will catch all the problems, and I'd be
concerned that we replace this problem with a different set of problems.
