On 2017-Aug-01, we have reached the Fedora 27 Change Checkpoint: Completion deadline (testable).
At this point, all accepted changes should be substantially complete, and testable. Additionally, if a change is to be enabled by default, it must be enabled at Change Completion deadline as well.
Change tracking bug should be set to the MODIFIED state to indicate it achieved completeness.
Incomplete and non testable Changes will be reported to FESCo for 2017-Aug-11 meeting.
Please set this bug to the MODIFIED state to indicate it is already in the testable state, or provide an update describing the current state of implementation for this Change.
Deferring. Please resubmit the Change proposal for review to Change wrangler once this is ready.

We really need this for f27. The review is nearly finished. We were delayed by security update of jdk8.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 27 development cycle.
Changing version to '27'.
We discussed it in the FESCo meeting yesterday and agreed to allow this as a late exception:
* AGREED: Allow Java 9 as a late exception for F27, as it's already
ready to land (+1:5, 0:0, -1:0) (kalev, 16:23:59)
thank you. the package is now built for f27+
On 2017-Sep-05 we reached the "Change Checkpoint: 100% Code Complete Deadline" milestone for Fedora 27 release. At this point all the Changes not at least in "ON_QA" state should be brought to FESCo for review. Please update the state of this bug to "ON_QA" if it is already 100% completed. Please let me know in case you have any trouble with the implementation and the Change needs any help or review.
Sure it is. Thank you.
