Hi Steve,

Great! I've just synced the type-annotations repositories against tl.

See the error report for this and the response in this thread:


As this won't be fixed until an 8u release, I've @ignored the test.

This failure was fixed thanks to Vicente's recent work.

I did a comparison between type-annotations/jdk and tl/jdk and, besides
the .hgtags, there are only two differences. I think the
type-annotations version is nicer for them:

jdk/src/share/classes/java/lang/reflect/Field.java indentation fixed

jdk/src/share/classes/java/lang/reflect/Modifier.java spelling fixed

Please do let me know if you still see type-annotations/jdk failures
that are unexpected.
