Debian Unstable is the only one I really care about ;-)

Oh and I suppose MacPorts.

One thing that might be useful which I can follow up is to get a CI of
Groovy, Gradle and GPars on Java 8 alongside the CI on 7, 6 and 5.
Assuming Bamboo and Team City don't offer barriers.

I assume that the (not so) hidden agenda here is that Java 9, Java 10,
Java 11, etc. should all be able to build on the evolution
infrastructure being created here.

As a side issue, we need a way of being able to forcibly expunge Java
1.3, 1.4 and 5 from existence.
