I hereby propose [1] the creation of Project Tiered Attribution with 
Vicente-Arturo Romero-Zaldivar as the Lead and the Compiler Group as the 
sponsoring group.

As type-checking got more and more complex with Java SE 8, the goal of 
the Tiered Attribtion project is to investigate an alternate 
architecture for the javac type-checking subsystem which would be free 
from so called speculative attribution (and resulting performance 
issues).  For more details see the JEP [2].

The initial Committers will be:

* Vicente-Arturo Romero-Zaldivar
* Jonathan Gibbons
* Joel Borggrén-Franck
* Maurizio Cimadamore
* Jan Lahoda

The project will host the following mailing list for developers:

* tiered-attribution-dev

Votes are due by Jan 2nd, 2015, 10AM PDT.

Only current OpenJDK Members [3] are eligible to vote on this
motion.  Votes must be cast in the open on the discuss list.
