Per the JDK 18 schedule [1], we are now in Rampdown Phase Two.

The overall feature set is frozen.  No further JEPs will be targeted
to this release.

Per the JDK Release Process [2] we now turn our focus to P1 and P2
bugs, which can be fixed with approval [3].  Late enhancements are
still possible, with approval [4], but the bar is now extraordinarily

If you’re responsible for any of the bugs on the RDP 2 candidate-bug
list [5] then please see JEP 3 for guidance on how to handle them.
