The package info for com.sun.security.jgss in jdk.security.jgss is also missing. The updated change looks like this (I omit the copyright header):


+ * This package defines APIs for signing jar files.
+ */
+package jdk.security.jarsigner;

+ * This module also defines APIs for signing JAR files.


+ * This package defines classes and interfaces for the JDK extensions
+ * to the GSS-API.
+ */
package com.sun.security.jgss;


- * Defines Java extensions to the GSS-API and an implementation of the SASL
+ * Defines JDK extensions to the GSS-API and an implementation of the SASL
 * GSSAPI mechanism.
