CfV: JDK 6 Project Dissolution and Archival

I hereby propose the dissolution and archival of the JDK 6 Project.

Rationale: This Project hasn't had a Project Lead for more than two 
years [3], and no mailing list traffic in that time, either [4]. It 
hasn't seen a single push go into its forest for more than four years. [5]

Given that there has not been any remaining interest in the OpenJDK 
Community in this Project for several years, I believe that it is time 
to thank all the former Project Leads, Reviewers, Committers, Authors 
and other Participants for their many contributions over the years and 
to move the JDK 6 Project to the "dissolved" state.

With that in mind, and in accordance with the Bylaws [6], I would like 
to ask this Project's Committers to vote to dissolve and archive the JDK 
6 Project. At that point its mailing list and forest will be closed for 
further contributions.

Votes are due by 5 PM PST on February 16th, 2023.

Only current JDK 6 Committers [1] are eligible to vote
on this nomination.  Votes must be cast in the open by replying
to this mailing list.

For Lazy Consensus voting instructions, see [2].
