I hereby propose the creation of the "JDK Updates" Project with myself
as the Lead and the Build Group as the sponsoring Group. The goal of
this Project will be to produce JDK Updates on top of the JDK Project
currently under discussion. [1]

I've been involved as a maintainer of the JDK 8 Updates Project [2]
since Dec 2013 and have been involved with managing all aspects of
a JDK Updates Project. I work as an engineer in the Oracle Java
Platform Group where JDK updates are key for delivering bug fixes
to end users

This will be a long running project responsible for producing all
future updates to the feature releases. [3]  The Project's repositories
will initially be open for select critical bug fixes only. The first
release of this project will focus on the updates for the JDK 9
Project. [4]

The initial Authors/Committers/Reviewers will be anyone who holds a
role in the JDK 8 Updates, JDK 9 & JDK 10 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 October 11th.
