Ok, it's cool to see that is not blocked.

I can't speak for Emmanuel but I wonder why you can't collaborate more
closely on this. I think it's undeniable you are the most experienced
OpenJDK maintainer and maybe the only one that's is active right now
(I think Damien is busy nowadays). So, if Emmanuel is interested on the
maintenance I think it's a good opportunity to integrate him to that
workflow and have more people on board.

That's absolutely true. However, if openjdk-8 is not going to be
included on jessie then the priority of taking care of those bugs
is not going to be very high for maintainers.

I concur. However, as I said I brought this topic because I'm
wondering about the relevance of some bugs at this point of the
release cycle, so it's tangentially relevant (for me at least).
