Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Math 3.3 based on RC2
Date Thu, 01 May 2014 21:10:09 GMT
Personally, I don't see a reason to revert the javadoc changes. There's no
turning back the clock on the javadoc processing engine -- it's not like 9
or 10 is going to stop warning about malformed HTML. Although I am not a
Math contributor/commiter, I support the change since going forward it will
make the doc generation predictable.
