I'm currently at SoCraTes 2016  and I got a chance to talk to Marc
Philipp , who is one of the maintainers of the JUnit project. As you
might know, the JUnit team is currently working on the next major release
of JUnit (JUnit 5 a.k.a Jupiter) . Quite a lot will change in JUnit 5
and Marc gave me a kick start about the new architecture. The JUnit team
already implemented a rudimentary surefire provider for JUnit 5  and
they eventually like to donate it to the maven project. This is where I
come into play, since I know Marc know and I'm a member of the ASF and I
though it would be good to help with this.
What I'd like to find out is how we can move this forward. So here are two
questions to get us started:
- is the maven community interested in a donation of a surefire provider
for JUnit 5? (I volunteer to drive that and maintain the code afterwards)
- JUnit 5 is Java 8. Will this be a blocker?
