Q: How should I get CSR review for multiple release trains?
A: Say you want to get an interface change into JDK N and later decide the change is also desirable and appropriate for the JDK (N-1) update release and that update release is using the CSR process. First a CSR should be created from the main bug targeted at JDK N. Afterward, if a backport of the main bug covering JDK (N-1) does not already exist, a backport of the main bug covering JDK (N-1) should be created. Then, a CSR can be created from that backport.
Q: When does a CSR need to be filed for a purely behavioral change?
A: Using qualitative terms, a CSR for a behavioral change should be filed if it is estimated enough developers or users would be sufficiently impacted by the change that it should get additional consideration or documentation. A judgment call is involved. If assistance is needed in determining whether or not a CSR needs to be filed, ask the CSR representative for that area or the CSR chair.
