The goal of this Project is to produce an open-source reference implementation of the Java SE 9 Platform, to be defined by a forthcoming JSR in the Java Community Process.
We're just getting started …
The Project's repositories will initially be open for bug fixes and small enhancements only. Features for the release will be proposed and tracked via the JEP Process.
Anyone who holds the Author, Committer, or Reviewer role in the JDK 8 Project and has contributed at least one changeset to JDK 8 will be granted the same role in the JDK 9 Project.
