[8u-communication] Plans for next Oracle OpenJDK 8 Updates based release

Oracle doesn't plan to create a separate JDK 8u PSU release with the
8u181 CPU[1] release scheduled for July 2018.

Given the small amount of changes that were destined specifically
for 8u182 (and not for 8u181 as well), the process to propose critical
fixes for inclusion in JDK 8u CPU releases [2] should be used instead,
where applicable.

If you have questions or concerns, please share them on the jdk8u-dev
mailing list.

The next Oracle release scheduled from this Project's forest would be
8u192. The provisional timeline is proposed as follows :

January 2018 - 8u-dev forest begins collecting 8u192 fixes
July 2018 - RampDown 2
October 2018 - GA

If I don't hear any objections, I'll post this timeline on the Project
page towards the end of this week.
