[Jersey] Re: Jersey1 issue closed because "will not fix in substained code"

Hi Gili,

As the closing comment suggests ("Minor issue, will not fix in the sustained code."), this is a minor issue in our view. As such we are not going to fix it in Jersey 1.x as this code has been moved to sustaining mode and we do not have cycles to fix such minor issues in a sustained code base. We will still be delivering fixes for critical bugs discovered in 1.x code base. However any new features or minor improvements & annoyance fixes in 1.x code base are left for community contribution.

Feel free to open feature requests against Jersey 2.x for any features you are missing there.
