Thank you.  From my point of view as an at-large member of the
governing board, I welcome this change: it is exactly the direction
we need to go for OpenJDK to become an true Open Source project.  Of
course I endorse Volker's point that developers outside Oracle need to
be able to submit jprt jobs, but this is a very welcome step.
