The JDK 8 Updates master forest has been gathering fixes since GA of 
8u112 which was the last release from this Project. I'd like to propose 
that we move ahead and make another JDK release based on the contents of 
that forest. If we aim for an October release, then we can release in 
parallel with the Oracle CPU release which is 8u151. The PSU release 
version would be 8u152 and would contain all fixes from the 8u151 CPU 
release plus all fixes which have gathered in the jdk8u forest to date.

Proposed timeline :

* July 2016 [8u-dev forest begins collecting 8u152 fixes]
* End July 2017 [RampDown 2]
* Oct 2017 [GA]

I'll update the Project page with these proposed dates shortly. As 
always, these dates are preliminary and are subject to change.
