Enhancement Backport Approval requests for the regular JDK 8 Update Project forest (jdk8u-dev) MUST be sent to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list and SHOULD follow this template:
Subject: [8u$N] Request for enhancement backport approval for CR $NR - $Synopsis
With the body containing:
- either a link to the publicly visible bug on the bugs.java.com site (or its equivalent), or a description of the change in case that there is no publicly visible bug to link to
- a rationale for why the enhancement should be backported, including the benefit and risks involved, what testing has been done, and what the results were.
Note that if an enhancement is approved for fixing in JDK 8 Updates, then a push approval request must still be submitted before the code changes are pushed.
