Would you find bringing those issues to security-dev? Adding the support 
for TLS 1.3 (JEP 332) was a massive effort. Lots of outreach and testing 
of the EA builds to shake out issues. Some issues did come up too late 
to fix in the JDK 11 GA and so were fixed in JDK 12 and early updates of 
JDK 11. Your mail doesn't include any details so impossible to say if 
something was missed or the changes to fix the issue weren't appropriate 
to backport into the early updates. So if you can find time, it would be 
useful to bring the issues to security-dev.
