JDK 8 Updates: Proposing critical 8u fixes for CPU releases
It would be nice if there was a way for OpenJDK 8u Authors, Committers and Reviewers to flag critical fixes that have been integrated into jdk8u-dev for consideration by the Oracle JDK 8u CPU Release Team for inclusion into a CPU release ahead of the release being worked on in jdk8u-dev.
Such a process can be facilitated if one follows the rules outlined below.
An OpenJDK 8u Author, Committer or Reviewer requesting their fix
in jdk8u-dev to be considered by the Oracle JDK CPU Release Team
for CPU integration SHOULD label the corresponding issue with
CPU-critical-request in the JDK Bug System.
If (and only if) approved by the Oracle JDK 8u CPU Release Team
the label will be updated to
They will then ensure that the approved fix gets integrated to an upcoming Oracle JDK 8u CPU release.
All relevant updates will be processed via the bug report.
Such bug fix requests should only be made for critical fixes. A guideline is
- P1 bug, or
- A serious regression which needs fixing ASAP
