      Description

      OpenJDK contributors are seeking an easier way to determine which tags in JDK source forests/repositoires denote GA JDK releases.

      I think such an enhancement would be beneficial for build and automation frameworks. One suggestion is to use a '-ga' type tag to denote GA builds. It would be used in addition to the regular build tags used for all JDK release. The GA tag would be added to the relevant sources once the GA milestone has been reached.

      e.g. the `jdk-10.0.2-ga` tag would match the `jdk-10.0.2+13` tag
