CCC is a committee/process for approving any change in JDK classes
that has a risk of impacting compatibility; for example, adding
a method to a class. This is one of the few remaining Oracle-only
processes, that have not yet been integrated into OpenJDK.
No one objects to the notion of imposing an extra safeguard step
for potential compatibility issues, but there are no OpenJDK rules
specifying committee composition, rules for when approval is needed,
and so on. In the mean time, Oracle engineers catch possible
cases where it applies and somehow do something about it.
