    I hereby nominate Richard Reingruber (rrich) to JDK Project Reviewer.

    Richard is a long-time member of the Java VM Team at SAP and has
    contributed over 30 changes to the JDK project[1].

    Recently, he has concentrated on JVMTI and compiler optimizations,
    improving performance when JVMTI capabilities are required. He
    identified and fixed a row of issues with JVMTI. [2]
    He has built up a deep knowledge of the various synchronization
    mechanisms in the VM and reviewed a row of complex changes
    in this area[3].

    Before, he has worked on platform ports for SAPs internal JVM.
    Among many other, the s390 C1 compiler and template interpreter
    in OpenJDK were originally ported by him.
    He has worked on improving CMS and did a lot of work on
    G1. He implemented the SAP Profiler Tool for G1.

    Richard is a very pertinacious engineer solving any problem
    that gets into his hands and will be an enrichment for the
    OpenJDK as reviewer.

    Votes are due by 18:00 GMT on Nov 30th 2020.

    Only current JDK Project Reviewers [4] are eligible to vote on this

    nomination.  Votes must be cast in the open by replying to this mailing
