The Maintenance process is for making minor changes to the Final Release specification, either through a Maintenance Errata Release (for clarifications or fixing typographical errors) or through a Maintenance Review (for minor substantive changes) and subsequent Maintenance Release. Maintenance Reviews and Releases are optional. You may choose to leave your JSR as Final Release or choose to present major changes to the specification as a new JSR instead.
The Maintenance process is substantially different depending on which JCP version applies to the JSR. Maintenance Leads should refer to the section below that applies to their JSRs.

JCP 2.11 | JCP 2.8 through 2.10 | JCP 2.7 and earlier

The PMO welcomes suggestions and requests from the Spec Leads for improvements of this guide and the process:
