Hi Rory,

Thanks for sharing - I've been following the jdk9-dev list closely and it's
probably fair to say that folks might want  to wait one extra week if they
are building OpenJDK itself.  There was a lot of dust flying from the build
script changes and it'll probably be 3-4 days before all of those issues
get filed and fixed.
