I don't know much about J1, as I've still to catch up. But I noted, in the  
past weeks, a "swept" of re-scheduling of bugs (were planned for JDK8, now  
are for "Van Ness" (*)). I suppose that might have had some impact.

(*) Please, can somebody clarify when "Van Ness" is expected to happen,  
including any eventual re-scheduling? Thanks.
