Hi Joe, Andrew,

I’m currently wondering about the status of the CSR process for JDK updates. Do we use the CSR process or not?

As per previous mailing list discussions [1], I read that that the project lead of 8u and 11u is under the assumption that we are using CSR. However, as per the latest CSRs in that area [2], [3],  I understand that the CSR group lead is under the assumption that Open JDK updates doesn’t use this process and hence these CSRs were pended. Obviously there’s some disconnect here… �� So, what is the current status? Did you already sort this out?

My personal view is that a CSR process would be beneficial to the JDK updates projects, too.

In any case, thanks in advance for some guidance on how to handle backports with attached CSRs!
