I hereby nominate Claes Redestad (redestad) to Amber Committer.

Claes is a member of the Java Performance team who's looking to join 
Project Amber.  He contributions to the JDK are too numerous to list 
here; a complete list of his patches to OpenJDK can be found at [3].

Claes is obsessed with startup; he's worked on  the jigsaw team to bring 
down bootstrap overhead from several hundred to little over 20ms on a 
JDK image in 9, optimized the indy bootstrap to bring first-time 
initialization costs of indy down from ~50ms in 8 to ~5-15ms in 9, and 
authored "bytestacks" to guide the optimization efforts and help 
untangle bootstrap dependencies.

Votes are due by Feb 2, 2018.

Only current Amber Committers [1] are eligible to vote on this nomination.

For Lazy Consensus voting instructions, see [2].

Thank you,
Brian Goetz
