The translation drop system is now an Oracle-wide translation system and 
we are strongly recommended to follow the standard naming convention for 
all Oracle products, which is component-name.tbom.

I have checked with the team and we can move the file away from the root 
of the source tree to, for example, jdk/make/jdk.tbom.

The XSD is available in NLSTOOLS ADE label.
It's internal information. I will find it and forward it to you separately.

Yes, JDK.

JDK and JRE are translated into different sets of languages. 2 languages 
for JDK and 10 for JRE. We used to divide the files this way in order to 
translate the files into the correct set of languages. But it's not 
necessary now. Sorting by groups or projects may be fine. Whatever is 
easy for the groups/teams to find and maintain their files.

In jdk.tbom, source and target are the same for all files. But on 
jdkclosed.tbom, the man page files have different source and target

OK, I will remove it.

I will look into it.
