I hereby nominate Andrew Dinn (adinn) to OpenJDK 8 Updates Committer.

While Andrew has only a couple of backports to OpenJDK 8u so far [0]
[1], he is already a committer for OpenJDK 7 Updates & a reviewer for
OpenJDK 9 and up. Thus, his lack of committer status on OpenJDK 8
Updates seems more a simple case of when he started contributing to
OpenJDK - as the same status is conferred on to new JDK releases, but
not retrospectively to older ones - than a lack of sufficient
technical qualification.

Votes are due by 17h00 UTC on the 27th of November, 2018.

Only current OpenJDK 8 Updates Committers (and above) [2] are eligible
to vote on
this nomination.
Votes must be cast in the open by replying to this mailing list.

For Lazy Consensus voting instructions, see [3].
