I think I was confused by the End Of Updates being March 2018; I expected a
last update just before End Of Updates.
I'm not sure whether we will have a new jdk9 updates maintainer step
forward. I'll ask around. Some combination of folks from Google, Red Hat,
Azul, etc might make it work.
Can I get my own personal jdk9u hosted at
to park my backport patches even if don't commit to owning jdk9 updates?
Can we get help from Oracle to run cross-platform tests on arbitrary trees
like jdk9u in the future (e.g. via jprt) even if Oracle itself no longer
supports that particular tree?
