hs14 is the version of hotspot that shipped with 6u14 and as such, is
We do not intend to apply or allow any further bug fixes to it,
one you propose here. It was never intended to be the basis for another
version of hotspot. Ongoing hotspot development goes forward only in the
openjdk hotspot repo, which is currently labeled hs16. Of course,
feel free to clone hs14 if they like, and apply what fixes they will to
One of those clones could easily be jdk6 open, but that's not our (the
group's) decision to make.
The next jdk6 update release will include a new version of hotspot, based
either on hs14 (in which case it'll be an SSR, we'll likely call it
hs14.1, and this
fix will be off limits) or the current openjdk hotspot repo (in which
will be a limited update, it'll likely be hs16, and the fix is already
in it). The
going-forward release is hs16. hs14 is a dead end.
