Hi Erik,

thanks for not having forgotten about this issue :)

Taking into account that 8u will be supported for at least five more
years until 2026 [1,2] and that all downports are meanwhile
originating from Git repositories I'm still strongly in favour of this
migration in general.

Regarding the technical migration details I think I'd slightly in
favour of the big-bang. one-step variant but I'm happy to accept the
decision of the current 8u maintainers, whatever that will be.

Best regards,
