I think the N-1 policy should be more clearly stated as "last GA".

When we started work on JDK 11, JDK 10 had not yet shipped, and so it
was appropriate for JDK 11 to use JDK 9 as the boot jdk. Now that JDK 10
has shipped, it becomes a candidate to be a boot JDK, and becomes
the most recent GA JDK version.

I like that, but don't you mean min("last GA", N-1)?


Yes, I guess the difference comes into play for updates, when JDK N might itself
be GA.

I guess you could less mathematically describe it as the "previous GA" policy.
