    I hereby nominate Christoph Langer [0] for the role of OpenJDK 8u Reviewer.
    He's a active member of many OpenJDK projects, including being
    a reviewer on OpenJDK 9 and up, and a committer to the Metropolis project.
    Most of his commits have been to OpenJDK 9 and later,
    but there are still a fair number in 8u [1] [2].
    In a similar manner to Andrew Dinn's nomination [3], his lack of
    reviewer status on OpenJDK 8 Updates, while holding it on all later
    releases, seems more a simple case of when he gained JDK reviewership -
    as the same status is conferred on to new JDK releases, but
    not retrospectively to older ones - than a lack of sufficient
    technical qualification.  With the new JDK and JDK-Updates projects
    covering all releases, this is a problem that only really applies
    to the older releases.
    Votes are due by the 27th of March, 2018, at 17h00 UTC.
    Only current OpenJDK 8u Reviewers [4] are eligible to vote on this
    nomination. Votes must be cast in the open by replying to this mailing
