In the OpenJDK Community we generally make decisions by rough consensus,
except for situations explicitly identified in the Bylaws as requiring
formal votes.

In any case, as the Lead of the JDK Project I endorse Seán’s original

Jesper -- since you handle promotion tagging for the main-line repo,
could you please also create the jdk-12-ga tag in that repo?  Thanks.
