As per the preliminary 8u72 timeline [1], the 8u72 Rampdown 2 milestone
is approaching. Please aim to have all 8u72 planned fixes addressed by
Oct 23rd. The 8u72 RDP2 build is planned for Oct 26th and fixes need to 
be in the jdk8u-dev forest slightly beforehand for PIT testing.

Once we enter RDP2, we'll fork the JDK8u master forest to create a JDK
8u72 stabilization forest. Only showstopper bugs should be considered
for fixing in RDP2 after that milestone.
