Betreff: Re: Draft JEP proposal: JDK-8200758: Packaging Tool

Thank you to all who provided feedback. I have updated the draft JEP
[1], and I think I have incorporated most of the feedback I received.
Specifically, I have reorganized and reworded a few things for clarity,
added '.exe' and '.app in a .dmg' native package format to the list of
features, and added the service bundler (daemon) feature to the "if we
have time" list (at the top of that list).

Please let me know if I missed an important point. I hope to submit this
JEP in the next week or two.
