AFAIU, the nature of this work implies extending the UUID spec a little, since we would need to 
mention Version 5 somewhere, which would require submitting the CSR [1] and working through it. This 
would require JIRA access privileges that are not granted to first-time contributors. I would 
suggest to do something that does not require API tweaks first, to get the taste of JDK development.

Otherwise, if you have anyone who can help you with CSR, I would say the next step would be doing a 
PR against mainline that implements the feature.
