I had a quick leaf through the OpenJDK Bylaws. 
It looks like the number of necessary approvals from 'reviewers' vs
'committers' (vs anyone else) is project-specific, so it isn't directly
defined there.

Now you raise it, I wasn't able to track down where in the JDK 8 project
documentation this is defined either.

The log of (at least) the jdk repository suggests that this limit isn't
universally applied (though in many cases, the submitter is of
'reviewer' status themselves - perhaps that counts towards the total ?).

Kelly, can you give guidance / pointers here ?
(So far, this change has found favor by one 'reviewer' - you - and two
'committers' - Zhengyu and myself).

Doh! Of course I can.
(I blame it all on coding-blindness - that's the same as snow-blindness,
but in hex).
