New JEP Draft: "Open-Source the Root Certificates"

Sean Mullan
Please review a new JEP Draft titled "Open-Source the Root
Certificates". The JDK source code currently contains an empty cacerts
keystore, which prevents security components such as TLS from working
out-of-the-box on OpenJDK builds.

The goal of this JEP is to provide a default set of root certificates in
the JDK, in order to reduce the differences between the OpenJDK and
Oracle JDK builds.

Thanks,
Sean
