First, the July release was scheduled
exceptionally for Java 9 deliverables only. So, nothing other changes would
have been allowed. The first official Update is in September as usual.
The July release is cancelled as Java
9 has been delayed to late September. Note that this release would have
been restricted for Java 9 only changes anyway. Wayne already updated the
document, but due to the change of the Eclipse Foundation e-mail addresses,
his change seems to hang in some moderation queue.
The process is pretty close to what
you guessed. Key is to wait until we really shipped 4.7. After that you
can backport the fix to R4_7_maintenance. At this point no PMC approval
is required, but a second review should happen. Note that we usually don't
clone the bug but just set the target to 4.7.1.

Timelines to backport fixes to Oxygen.1 Sent by:
Well I really hope that dates communicated in official documents don't change because Oracle failed to deliver.
If this plan is revised I thing the Planning Council needs to react immediately because companies rely on this dates when they do their release planning!
I'm not so deep into platform-dev anymore what's the process to get something backported?
I guess: 0. Push to master and let it cook for some days (already done) 1. I create a bugzilla clone for the issue 2. Provide a fix (3. Request approval from PMC, other committers)?
