My concern is what will happen to the libraries in the default module
stream? When installing, e.g., dogtag-pki, this brings in the following
packages from a default module stream:


Of these, apache-commons-{cli,codec,io,logging} are all directly required
by dogtag-pki, which doesn't yet fully work with JDK-11. (I'm not quite
sure how httpcomponents-{client,core} gets pulled in).

Will you continue building these with a target bytecode version for use
with JDK8, even though you're building with JDK11? Or are you only building
the maven and ant packages with JDK 11 (and not building all libraries
in the module with JDK 11)?
