These features are described by JEPs, not JSRs. Because the features 
make small changes to the Java language, JVM, and java.* API, they are 
being carried out under the authority of the Java SE 8 Platform Umbrella 
JSR (337) as required by http://jcp.org/en/procedures/jcp2#2.1.2.


> Alex,
> Could you please point me to the publicly-available issue tracker at OpenJDK for these JSRs? I can't seem to find them.
> Thanks.
