Hi Alan,

Thank you for doing this. I see that Kumar volunteered to be your reviewer.
So are you pushing the change today?

 > BTW: Would it make sense to integrate jdk8/tl -> master next week too?
I thought about this too and yes, this would make everybody's life easier.
I can start TL PIT as soon as you push the change (please let me know 
when you push it).

Thank you,
