Should probably be added, but it hasn't changed from the jdk8 version yet.

build-dev is the main mailing list for build related issues. 
build-infra-dev was/is a project specific list for the build-infra 
project, which was the project where we rewrote all the makefiles and 
introduced configure. We used to to reduce the noise on build-dev. It's 
currently not very active, but we are planning (hoping) to rewrite 
Hotspot makefiles under that banner for jdk9.

I very much doubt anyone is on build-infra-dev without being on 
build-dev, so crossposting both is not necessary.

Yes, Magnus is not on that list and Kelly isn't active anymore. Looking 
at the page I get the confusion of build-dev and build-infra-dev since 
the title is "Build Infrastructure Group".
