As a heads-up, we will stop automatically forward-sync changes from 8u
to 9 in about two weeks (to coincide with the feature freeze of 8u60). I
will give more details later, but the high-level summary is:
* It will be business as usual next week and until 1am on Monday, Mar 23
-- most changes will be pushed into 8u-dev for 8u60
* I will sync changes as usual from 8u-dev to 9-dev
* Some time during the week of Mar 23 (I hope it will be on the 23rd,
but might be a couple days later), we plan to backport the webkit
changes to 8u60 and push them into 8u-dev; since this will include the
compiler upgrade for 8u60 I will send a separate notification about this.
* It will still be business as usual through 1am on Monday, Mar 30. I
will export any changesets that go into 8u-dev after the webkit backport
and import them into 9-dev so that we will effectively continue
auto-syncing through Mar 30.
* On Monday, Mar 30, all developers should plan to switch to the same
model that the JDK uses: namely fixes should go into 9-dev first and
those fixes that are relevant to 8u60 can be backported to 8u60 and
pushed to 8u-dev; it will become the developer's responsibility to do
Let me know if you have any questions on any of this.
