There's a section in JEP 200 about modules.xml, it is temporary until
there is a module system in place. The jdeps tool is updated with a new
option to read it and check for changes (the dependency check is more
detailed that might be initially obvious). For now, committers to
Project Jigsaw are the custodians of the module graph and I think the
requirement for a Reviewer will last at least as long as this side file
needs to exist. In time I assume that processes for dealing with changes
to the module graph will be on par with other API changes.
