As per the preliminary 8u40 timeline [1], the 8u40 Rampdown 2 milestone
is approaching. Please aim to have all 8u40 planned fixes addressed by
the first week in December. The 8u40 RDP2 build is planned for the week
of December 15th and fixes need to be in the team forests 1 week before
that for PIT testing.

Once we enter RDP2, we'll fork the JDK8u master forest to create a JDK
8u40 stabilization forest. Only showstopper bugs should be considered
for fixing in 8u40 after that milestone.
