Please, no.  Asking jdk-dev should be the option of last resort.  If
you're working on a fix for something then you've hopefully already
discussed it on the appropriate list.  I agree that we should make it
easier for newcomers to figure out which list to go to, but spamming
jdk-dev is not the answer.
