Hi Brian,
Wouldn't we have valhalla-spec-(observers/comments)?


Best Regards,

> It's time to take the next step in Valhalla's evolution.  Accordingly,
> I've created the valhalla-spec-experts list, which will be the precursor to
> an eventual JCP Expert Group, and will operate under the JCP-friendly ToU.
> This list is publicly archived in the obvious place, and the initial
> membership includes both corporate participation (Oracle, IBM, Red Hat,
> Jetbrains, Google) and individuals from the OpenJDK community.
> As was the case when we formed the Lambda experts list, the role of
> valhalla-dev should now revert to its intended purpose, which is to discuss
> the *implementation* of Valhalla in OpenJDK.  Examples of appropriate
> discussion topics for valhalla-dev include:
> - Bug reports
> - Code review comments
> - Test cases
> - Build or porting problems
> - Migration experiences for your own code
> What we are trying to avoid is: having design discussions play out
> concurrently in multiple places with differing sets of players.  So please,
> we ask that you exercise restraint in commenting on active EG discussions
> -- as design decisions start to converge, we'll announce them here, and of
> course the primary place for implementation will remain the valhalla
> repositories.
> Please remember that EG discussions often happen at a different pace than
> in other open-source projects.  Days can go by without a response, but this
> doesn't mean that the EG is not thinking about it, doesn't care, or is
> "stumped".  Often it simply means the EG members are working privately (or
> with their teams) to figure out what their position is, and will respond
> when they've thought about it more.  So, please let those discussions play
> out.
