I'm not sure. I myself hadn't used it previously. The introduction 
mail[1] hadn't mentioned any specific tiers/tests so I always assumed 
that it would run all tests against all the tested platforms.

You are right indeed. Before sending this mail, I had triggered a 
(subset) of tier2 (specifically jdk:tier2) on my local setup and that 
just completed a while back. So that indeed is good news for me for any 
future testing. My previous attempt at running tier2 around a year back 
wasn't so successful and I had to kill it after multiple hours of it 
continuing to run.

For tier1 testing GitHub Actions has indeed been very helpful, 
especially the ability to trigger manual builds of specific branches 
against specific platforms of choice. I wonder if I can come up with a 
new GitHub workflow to trigger tier2 tests for all platforms against it 
- perhaps not for each PR but for manual/on-demand runs. I'll experiment 
a bit some time soon.
