type-annotations based on JDK 9?

Hi all,

now that updates in the JDK 8 repositories are winding down, I'm
wondering whether I should start updating type-annotations from a JDK
9 forest, e.g.:


Or should we keep the current jdk8/tl setup and switch once a jdk8u
forest exists?

The type-annotations forest could continue to be the "play-ground" for
fixes to type annotations handling.
Or should we unceremoniously remove the type-annotations forest?

cu, WMD.
