JDK 9 Feature-Complete Extension Request Process

This process applies from Feature Complete until the end of the release.

Requesting an extension

If you own a JEP or a small enhancement that is not yet complete then you can request an FC extension as follows: Update the JBS issue to add a comment whose first line is "FC Extension Request". In that comment describe the remaining work to be done, the risk level, a brief justification, and your best estimate of the date by which the feature will be complete. Add the label jdk9-fc-request to the issue.

If you own a JEP that's targeted to JDK 9, but won't make it, then please propose to drop it; this will move the JEP back to the Candidate state unless there are strong objections.

If you own a small enhancement whose fix version is 9, but won't make it, then please clear the fix-version field.

Reviewing extension requests

The Area Leads, relevant Group Leads, and the JDK 9 Project Lead will review pending extension requests on a regular basis, at least weekly if not more often. One of us will take one of the following actions:

JBS query for pending requests: http://j.mp/jdk9-fc-pending

As of Rampdown Phase Two, only the Project Lead may approve FC extension requests.

Responding to actions taken on your request
