I hereby nominate Adam Petcher to JDK Reviewer.

Adam is a member of the Security Libraries Team at Oracle. He has been 
working on security for the JDK since December 2016 and has made 28 
official contributions [3]. Adam is also the lead of 2 significant 
crypto related JEPs, one which will be delivered in JDK 11, and the 
other which is currently a Candidate:

    - JEP 324: Key Agreement with Curve25519 and Curve448 
    - JEP 339: Edwards-Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (EdDSA) 

In addition, he was a contributor to the TLS 1.3 implementation and 
wrote code for the session resumption and signature schemes which will 
be delivered in JDK 11:

Based on Adam's work on JEPs and the many significant contributions he 
has made to the JDK, I believe he is fully ready for the Reviewer role.

Votes are due by 15:00 GMT Tuesday August 14, 2018.

Only current JDK Reviewers [1] are eligible to vote on this nomination. 
Votes must be cast in the open by replying to this mailing list.

For Three-Vote Consensus voting instructions, see [2].
