Hi Gunnar,

There are two Java 11 issues:

It may be just one.

yes, Bug 539681 in Mylyn Commons is the root cause, but I haven't heard
back from the Mylyn maintainers. And moving the news plugin to some
other feed parsing library (which we would need a CQ for) is not
something I have time for right now, so fixing this upstream in Mylyn
Commons would be my preferred solution.

I wonder if anyone knows if there is anyone working
on a solution? It looks like the correct approach would be to use import
package and include the jaxb bundle from Orbit but only resolve it on
Java 11. I'm not sure if that works. Should we disable the recommenders
newsfeed meanwhile to prevent the bad experience for users?

I have created [1] a while back to disable it for now, before going on
vacation. Looks like the Gerrit change [2] still hasn't been merged. (As
this affects not just the Java package I maintain but also the
committers package, I've added Markus Knauer as a co-reviewer in Gerrit.)

So, yes, IMHO we should disable it for now.

Best wishes,
