That document is a summary of the changes for integrating modules into
the JLS and JVMS. If you are looking for the actual changes to the JLS
and JVMS then the drafts are linked from the next paragraph.
The summary document has been really useful to document several aspects
of the proposed changes in advance of the actual changes to the specs.
It will be familiar to those that have been tracking the JSR and EA
builds over the last 20 months or so. I've found it particularly useful
as a document to point the maintainers of tools at when there are
questions about the binary format of a module declaration. I can't speak
for Alex but I believe that it will be hollowed out to be just the
summary of the changes.
