I hereby propose the creation of the "JDK 8 Updates" Project with me
as the Lead and the Build Group as the sponsoring Group.

The goal of this Project will be to produce JDK 8 Updates on top of
the JDK 8 Project [1].

I've been involved as a maintainer in the JDK 7u Project [2] since
May 2012 and have gained a good grasp of all aspects to
managing a JDK Updates Project. I work as an engineer in the Oracle
Java SE Sustaining team where JDK updates are a core piece of
infrastructure for delivering bug fixes to end users.

The Project will follow a similar process to that of the JDK 7u
Project. The Project's repositories will initially be open for
bug fixes and small enhancements only. Features and major changes
for the release will be proposed and tracked via the existing JEP
Process [3].

The initial Authors/Committers/Reviewers will be anyone who holds a
role in the JDK 8, JDK 7u, HSX, or Nashorn Projects and has contributed
at least one changeset.  The most senior role across those Projects will
be granted in this Project.

Votes are due by 23:59 UTC on Wednesday, 18th December 2013.

Only current OpenJDK Members [4] are eligible to vote on this motion.
Votes must be cast in the open on the discuss list.  Replying to this
