WTP Provisional API Reduction
- Indigo report (2670 classes) Indigo provisional API
- Juno M5 report (2617 classes) Juno M5 provisional API
- Report searched for "provisional" and "experimental" in source comments / removed references to other "provisional" classes
- Many deprecated classes still marked provisional
- Many "internal" and "provisional" classes.
- Team's and adopters will inspect reports.
- Gather adopter usage of these api's
- We don't want to break compatibility (namespace / package changes)
- Team's identify and propose classes that will graduate to API in the short term(Juno M6)
- Team's propose longer term plan for reduction (post Juno)
- Always use New Help for Old Friends(Kepler) to report any incompatible changes
