Re: [tycho-dev] Vote: Require Java 17 for Tycho 3.0
Actually there is no other force than that we have so much changed and
it becomes harder and harder to backport fixes to 2.7.x line that we
really should "get it out".
At least from my side, I won't mind to have many major versions, even
short after 3.x as the version number does not mean anything (to me) and
I don't see any reason to have 3.x for as long as possible ...
Beside I think it would be good to either vote for +1 or -1 because
there won't be much more votes we need any vote (don't know if there is
a quorum to reach ... but we should not complicate it too much)

As elaborated on the mentioned issue I think it would be beneficial to
move to Java-17, but we should not risk foreseeable/expected technical
issues. But since I cannot judge on the risk I vote neutral.
An alternative would be to postpone the release to gain more confidence.

My current experience with projects I migrated is that Java 17 allows to
concretely achieve higher code quality and better maintainability as
some patterns leave less room for errors and increase expressiveness. I
also think that it's in the best interest of the world to encourage
moving to newer Java versions and that since the version that runs Tycho
is not correlated with the target version of what is built, it's not a
big constraint to require Java 17 to build.
In general, devtools and build technologies are the best one to migrate
forward; and lead the ecosystem.
