Hi Kai-Chung,

I think upgrading src:groovy to version 2.x is a good idea. Though it is
more important that we upgrade all reverse dependencies of groovy 1.x to
to groovy 2.x first, so that we can drop one source package before the
Stretch release.

These are the current reverse dependencies in unstable:

freemind -> will be removed from Debian soon because we have a very
similar package already (freeplane)

libspring-java -> must be updated to a newer version

jenkins -> unmaintainable, can be ignored

red5 -> must be updated to a newer version

If you want to update either libspring-java or red5, that would be a big
