FYI: The Wiki page for jdk8 updates now also mentions the new RDP2 process. It needs to be applied for fixes targeting 8u212 as of now.

Subject: [jdk8u, jdk11u] Process update: Patch approval process for fixes after RDP2


as discussed on the mailing list [0], we have updated our process for critical fixes that should go into the OpenJDK update release that is stabilized in jdk8u/jdk11u after RDP2 (such as 11.0.3 at the moment and 8u212 in a few days).

If a fix shall be brought to jdk8u/jdk11u directly, please use the labels jdk8u-critical-request/jdk11u-critical-request. The maintainer will then set jdk8u-critical-yes/jdk11u-critical-yes if the fix request is approved or jdk8u-critical-no/jdk11u-critical-no otherwise.

I’ve updated the Wiki page for the jdk11u updates project [1] accordingly and will do this for jdk8u next week, too.

As always, feedback is welcome ��

Best regards
