> For JDK 8, changes to the Master and all team forests are sent to jdk8-changes at ojn. Push notifications to team forests are also sent to various -dev mailing lists. In some cases notifications may be sent to multiple mailing lists. For instance, changes to the tl forest are sent to compiler-dev, core-libs-dev, serviceability-dev, security-dev, and net-dev. With the reduction in the number of team repos in JDK 9 particularly for client, the number of duplicate push notifications will increase.

That sounds like a good change to me; I think using option 1) for opt-in
would be fine.
