Date Mon, 12 Aug 2019 13:50:31 GMT
I have had this build pass twice, running

mvn -V clean install site -P japicmp

Apache Maven 3.6.1 (d66c9c0b3152b2e69ee9bac180bb8fcc8e6af555;
Maven home: /usr/local/Cellar/maven/3.6.1/libexec
Java version: 1.8.0_171, vendor: Oracle Corporation, runtime:
Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: UTF-8
OS name: "mac os x", version: "10.14.6", arch: "x86_64", family: "mac"

I do however see a bunch of errors and warnings in the build, that while
they do not fail the build, may or may not be known, as well as things
like: There are 526 errors reported by Checkstyle 8.23 with

And errors building models for http-client–3 etc.

Here is the gist of my build log:

I have tested this with 'mvn -V clean install site -P japicmp' using:

Apache Maven 3.6.1 (d66c9c0b3152b2e69ee9bac180bb8fcc8e6af555;
Maven home: C:\Java\apache-maven-3.6.1\bin\..

Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: Cp1252
OS name: "windows 10", version: "10.0", arch: "amd64", family: "windows"

Details of changes since 2.4 are in the release notes:

(note some *relative* links are broken and the 2.4.1 directories are
not yet created - these will be OK once the site is deployed.)

JApiCmp Report (compared to 2.4):

RAT Report:

For following is intended as a helper and refresher for reviewers.

Validating a release candidate

These guidelines are NOT complete.

Requirements: Git, Java, Maven.

You can validate a release from a release candidate (RC) tag as follows.

1) Clone and checkout the RC tag

git clone --branch
commons-vfs-2.4.1-RC1 commons-vfs-2.4.1-RC1
cd commons-vfs-2.4.1-RC1

2) Check Apache licenses

This step is not required if the site includes a RAT report page which you
then must check.

mvn apache-rat:check

3) Check binary compatibility

Newer components use JApiCmp with the japicmp Maven Profile:

This step is not required if the site includes a JApiCmp report page which
you then must check.

mvn install -DskipTests -P japicmp japicmp:cmp

4) Build the package

mvn -V clean package

You can record the Maven and Java version produced by -V in your VOTE
To gather OS information from a command line:
Windows: ver
Linux: uname -a

5) Build the site for a single module project

Note: Some plugins require the components to be installed instead of

mvn site
Check the site reports in:
- Windows: target\site\index.html
- Linux: target/site/index.html

6) Build the site for a multi-module project

mvn site
mvn site:stage
Check the site reports in:
- Windows: target\site\index.html
- Linux: target/site/index.html
