Push requests for the regular JDK 8 Update Project forests (jdk8u-dev) MUST be sent to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list and SHOULD follow this template:
Subject: [8u$N] Request for 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
- either a link to the publicly visible webrev or a link to the original changeset in the JDK Project if it's the same patch.
- if the review is taking place somewhere else, a link to the public review thread. If the review from the JDK Project is relevant, a link to it should also be included.
- if the fix has already been reviewed for inclusion into jdk8u-dev, the list of reviewers
Note that post Rampdown Phase 2 pushes to a release require extra levels of approvals. Developers need to request a phase 2 approval in such cases.
