adding swing-dev which is the correct list for this Swing change.

It looks like a faithful backout of

except that the (c) year is remaining 2020 .. which I think just
indicates the silliness of all these (c) updates since the only
changes to these files in 2020 were those which you have now backed out.

So I think you should revert the (c) changes as well.

If some one else comes along and updates all files in JDK with updates in 2020
and so re-adds it then that is their problem ...

This change reverts the fix for JDK-8226253.

The fix of JDK-8226253 breaks the specification of AccessibleState.SHOWING for JList and has caused a regression with JTree.

There is no alternative to fix JDK-8226253 on JDK side and the issue should be really fixed on Screen reader side.

So in order to keep the correctness of spec and avoid any new regression, the fix needs to be reverted.
