@hinerm@tpietzsch Hehe, it was me who changed it. Without reading this channel. :tongue:
Sorry for the confusion there.
This is why the Release-Version job has a big ol' warning at the top: "please make sure the component's Jenkins job is currently passing first!"
Because if your project unintentionally required Java 8 to build, the main Jenkins job would (correctly) fail, but Release-Version would erroneously succeed and cut a release.
Once everything is fully on Java 8, this won't be a problem anymore of course.
@tpietzsch I added Pietzsch as an uploader for the Java-8 site. So now you just write "webdav:Pietzsch" for your host in the Java-8 row. And it should allow you to upload there.
You might want to double-check that the Jenkins job for each of your components is set to build with the correct version of Java.
Unfortunately, we cannot just change them all to Java 8 across the board, because as you may know, components requiring an older version of Java may end up getting successfully built even though they use Java-8-only code.
(I.e.: the -target and -source flags are not 100% safeguards against incompatible code creeping in.)
