Hi Andrew,

I totally agree that we need more OpenJDK developers in the security
area and I'm sure Martin is a perfect fit for this role.

But the process document [1] clearly states that a "Contributor should
make at least eight significant contributions to that Project before
being nominated". From the references you've provided I can only see
five changes contributed by Martin. I'd therefore like to kindly ask
you to withdraw this CFV and postpone it until Martin has reached at
least the required minimum number of contributions.

Sorry for nit-picking, but I think we should all play by the same rules.

Best regards,
