openjdk8u211 tag

Given the proposed process for the 8u quarterly releases going forward, I think that 8u212 would we the proper
tag for the actual April release under such a process. [See separate discussion under "Numbering of updates in
future 8u quarterly releases" (e.g.
where we seem to have a quiet consensus that using the 8uXX2 numbers is the least-bad choice for now]

I guess we could have two tags (8u211 and 8u212) to distinguish the presumably security-related stuff from other
things as has been done traditionally, and just assume that everything tagged 8u211 is also included in the 8u212

Or just one for both, which should probably be 8u212.

Which will be more confusing?
