As you may know, I have been the gatekeeper for the JSN (Java Security & 
Networking) gate for the last 4 or so years.  As many of JSN and TL 
(Tools & Libraries) changes are interrelated, we have been 
combining/testing/integrating the JSN & TL changes together into the 
MASTER workspaces.  JSN has been a "subgate" of TL for several years.

I have been asked to lead a new OpenJDK infrastructure project.  In 
order to reduce my workload, we have decided that the JSN gate will be 
End-Of-Life'd following next week's integration into TL on 20 Oct 2008. 
  All developers working in the JSN gate will immediately transition to 
the TL gate under gatekeeper Tim Bell.

I will resync the JSN workspaces one last time on Monday, but after 
that, all pulls/pushes should be done to TL.


I hope to make the JSN gate READ-ONLY at that point, not sure if I can 
do that yet.

It's with mixed feelings, I've been doing this for quite a while and 
have it down to an art.
