I agree that the 9u repo is due to be created fairly soon. (I'm not involved in the repo creation though.)

Just a suggestion to help you remember the backports: Create the backport issue in JBS, set the fix version to 9-pool and assign it to yourself. As long as you keep track of issues assigned to you it should stay on your radar until the update repo is created.

For 8 that would probably work but for 9 it is to my knowledge not possible at the moment. So I trigger the downport to 8 and then step away. And eventually it's very likely that I forget to do the downport to 9 at the time there will be an update branch. So, when will an update branch be opened? Or what else can I do to not forget my potential fixes for JDK9 update releases, e.g. label my bug for some automatic integration?
