Could I get the CSR reviewed:

The javax.security.cert APIs were deprecated in 1.9 but have had the 
following warning (since 1.4.2) in the description of each class:

     Note: The classes in the package javax.security.cert exist for
     compatibility with earlier versions of the Java Secure Sockets
     Extension (JSSE). New applications should instead use the standard
     Java SE certificate classes located in java.security.cert.

Since these earlier versions of JSSE are no longer maintained or 
supported, they should be removed in a future release.

This proposal will add forRemoval=true to the deprecated 
javax.security.cert APIs.
