Required integration testing changes? related to: Proposal to revise forest graph and integration practices for JDK 9

This may not be the thread to bring up this topic, but, AFAIK, external
contributors still can't run JPRT.  I guess that doesn't really change the
need to run it as part of continuous integration, but it makes it slightly
more frustrating to contribute.

Perhaps making it available externally could be done together with whatever
jiggering is required to get it integrated into the continuous testing?
