I did not want to come across harsh and devalue the many hours of work
that went into the project by the various contributors. Please accept my
apology. My criticism was in no way intended to target the amber project
or the JEP 325 in question here.

From my outside perspective it just seemed to me that a few people
raised objections to targeting the JEP to JDK 12, those objections have
not (in my perception) been adequately addressed, and then the JEP has
simply been accepted to target JDK 12. It did seem bit heavy-handed to
me. Brian's and Mark's comments did help to understand the situation
better. Thanks!
