While I was writing the above, there were two announcements on jdk-dev 
of JEPs having their state changed (both were targeted to JDK 13):

Out of interest, I followed the second mail's link to JEP 351. The 
Description field of JEP 351 told me that the feature -- an enhancement 
to ZGC -- is discussed on `hotspot dash gc dash dev at openjdk dot java 
dot net`. I visited the archives of hotspot-gc-dev for April and May, 
and immediately saw mails discussing the feature.

The commitment to transparency, both by the feature's engineers and the 
OpenJDK Lead, is incredible.
