Sun Mar 26 20:49:14 2017  stephenc:hboutemy: so some interesting on BourneShell
Sun Mar 26 20:49:29 2017  stephenc:Solaris 11 does not have a crappy shell
Sun Mar 26 20:49:37 2017  stephenc:at least not by default
Sun Mar 26 20:49:42 2017  stephenc:Solaris 10 does
Sun Mar 26 20:49:54 2017  stephenc:and Solaris 10 is still a supported OS by Oracle
Sun Mar 26 20:50:30 2017  stephenc:And you can get Java 7 on Solaris 10
Sun Mar 26 20:51:18 2017  stephenc:So question, to my mind, is what OSes do we want to say we support
Sun Mar 26 20:51:35 2017  stephenc:I think we could put together two or three tiers
Sun Mar 26 20:52:19 2017  stephenc:Tier 1: Windows, Ubuntu/Debian/RedHat/Fedora/SuSE, macOS
Sun Mar 26 20:52:32 2017  stephenc:Tier 2: FreeBSD, Solaris 11
Sun Mar 26 20:52:46 2017  stephenc:Tier 3: Solaris 10, others
Sun Mar 26 20:52:55 2017  stephenc:Say our priority is Tier 1
Sun Mar 26 20:53:05 2017  stephenc:We will make best effort with tier 2
Sun Mar 26 20:54:33 2017  stephenc:If people come with patches for Tier 3 we will pick them up, but we are not making any effort to test ourselves
Sun Mar 26 21:03:07 2017  stephenc:Hmmm rumour has it on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_command_shells that FreeBSD ships with a Bourne shell by default for non-root users
Sun Mar 26 21:05:09 2017  stephenc:looks like I'm going to have to test freebsd for the $() usage too
Sun Mar 26 21:17:52 2017  tibor_:@stephenc: Why is BourneShell a problem? Does it have to do anything with calling a suprocess?

Sun Mar 26 21:37:02 2017  stephenc:tibor_ BourneShell doesn't understand $()
Sun Mar 26 21:37:07 2017  stephenc:you have to use `...`
Sun Mar 26 21:37:11 2017  stephenc:MNG-6195
Sun Mar 26 21:37:43 2017  stephenc:we currently (as in 3.5.0-beta-1) have two funky bugs in the mvn launcher script
Sun Mar 26 21:37:56 2017  stephenc:1. we use readlink -f which is broken on macOS
Sun Mar 26 21:38:24 2017  stephenc:2. we use $(...) to do command substitution in a couple of places (which is broken on FreeBSD and Solaris 10
