Hello Phil. For me the main goal was to fix this bug in the latest JDK 
feature release, that is why I initiated integration to "openjdk/jdk" as 
soon as the fix was approved there. Integration of this fix to 
"openjdk/jdk" repository was my first integration to OpenJDK project in 
Git, at that moment I did not anticipate that obligatory synchronization 
from "openjdk/jdk16" to "openjdk/jdk" yet. Today based on the fact that 
this bug is P3 and not an enhancement and that following "fix-request" 
process in JBS is not prescribed for this type of bug in RDP 1 phase, 
and that this bug on Monday still was targeted to JDK 16, I came to a 
conclusion that there is legal right to go through this back port 
procedure to try to deliver the fix to JDK 16. I thought that there 
would not be a trouble during this synchronization, because in Mercurial 
such cases during merge were handled automatically silently. Hopefully 
Git will manage to handle it automatically.

I guarantee that this is the first and last time from my side, next 
times, if there are, I will not be initiating back ports to 
stabilization repositories in pre-RDP 2 phases, if the fix is integrated 
to always open repository.
