      Issue

      commons-httpclient:commons-httpclient has been replaced by org.apache.httpcomponents:httpclient a long time ago but there is still code using the old one.

      The idea is to track any use of commons-httpclient and replace it with the new one. A good way to find them is to search for any reference to commons-httpclient in the pom.xml files and removed them to see how it goes.

      Note that changing the dependency is not enough, the API changed a lot so the code will need to be rewritten.

      The modification should also include an enforcer rule to make sure no module use the old one in the future. You can find an example of how it's done for commons-lang3 and commons-configuration2 in https://github.com/xwiki/xwiki-commons/blob/master/pom.xml.
