Please distinguish "specification changes" from "language/VM changes":
- "specification changes" concern changes in the text of the JLS and
JVMS. There have long been aliases for feedback about errors, omissions,
and ambiguities in the text - see  and  for the most recent info.
There has long been a bug category too - recall
"java/java/specification" in Bugtraq, now "specification" in JBS. People
use these channels all the time.
- "language/VM changes" concern changes in the design of the Java
language and abstract JVM. compiler-dev, hotspot-dev, and their
associated JBS components are assuredly not the right place.
