I just did that for https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8181190 but
it feels a bit odd. That has generally meant "peer reviewed by an area 
as opposed to the CSR review angle ..

Comments feel too free form for that.

is in Provisional State but I see no way to pend it.

Whereas https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8181190
is in Proposed State and there I do see a button labelled "Pending" but
"Pending" reads like "I am in pended state".
Shouldn't the button be labelled "Pend" ?
