Not necessarily. The Maintenance Lead (ML) for a JSR is the official 
contact for bugs in that JSR's spec. Just because a JSR's spec is 
integrated into the text of the JLS or JVMS doesn't mean that the ML's 
responsibilities diminish. In 2025, substantive feedback about the JMM9 
spec developed in 2015 should be sent to the ML, not 
jls-jvms-spec-comments. To the extent that people send substantive 
feedback to jls-jvms-spec-comments anyway, the owner of that alias 
should not hesitate to bounce mails to the correct ML.
