Is JBR open source?

Does JetBrains submit changes to OpenJDK?

If some changes are submitted, and others are not submitted, what, in general, are the criteria for submission?

If this is the wrong place to ask about JBR, what is the correct place?

Thanks.

We do.

Hard to say, it depends a lot on the change itself. Some changes are not accepted by OpenJDK while are critical for the proper functionality of our products.

Thanks.

Is there any commonality to the changes that OpenJDK rejects?

One of the main reason why we do not submit all our fixes to OpenJDK is that we do not always provide generalized solutions. Not that JBR won't work for third-party GUI apps (it already does), but yet the main purpose of JBR is to run JetBrains IDEs.
