Comment (by iwakeh):

 Replying to [comment:3 karsten]:
 > Yes! But how do we make sure that metrics-lib gets migrated last? Can we
 override the setting there and wait for the next major metrics-lib release
 to upgrade to Java 8?

 I would define "migrated" as "having been released".  Thus, metrics-base
 could be set to Java 8 now and the various products are migrated once
 their first release based on Java 8 is out.  Upping metrics-base to Java 8
 at first only affects development.

 Actually, the order of releases doesn't really matter, just that the
 products depending on metrics-lib need to be based on Java 8 when they are
 supposed to use a metrics-lib release that is Java 8.  Only to prevent
 hot-fix releases for older metrics-lib releases, metrics-lib should be
 released as last product using Java8 (just in case something comes up
 before everything uses metrics-lib based on Java 8).
