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".
