JDK 9 Rampdown Phase One
The specific goals of this phase are to:
Fix all P1-P3 bugs that are new in JDK 9,
Fix additional P1-P3 bugs targeted to JDK 9 as time permits, and
Explicitly defer any P1-P2 bugs that are new in JDK 9 but will not, for good reason, be fixed in JDK 9.
P4-P5 bugs should, in general, be left to future releases unless they only affect documentation or tests, in which case they should be identified as such with the noreg-doc, noreg-demo, or noreg-self labels, respectively.
The current list of candidate Rampdown Phase One (RDP 1) bugs can be found here: http://j.mp/jdk9-rdp-1. If you're responsible for a bug on this list then you can take one of the following actions:
Fix the bug (preferred), or
If the bug is not new in JDK 9 (check the "Affects Version" field) then you can un-target it from JDK 9 by clearing the "Fix Version" field or setting that field to some future release, or
If the bug is new in JDK 9, and is P1 or P2, but it cannot be fixed in time or is too risky to fix, then you can request that the bug be deferred from the release via the bug deferral process.
In any case, do not change the priority of a bug in order to remove it from the list. The priority of a bug should reflect the importance of fixing it independent of any particular release, as has been standard practice for the JDK for many years.
