Oracle has updated the Oracle Java SE Support Roadmap with a Java SE 8
End of Public Updates Notice. [0]

Oracle doesn't plan to contribute further changes to JDK 8 Updates in
this OpenJDK Project once updates of Java SE 8 are no longer being
posted to its public download site, in January 2019.

Users of OpenJDK JDK 8 Updates builds should consider upgrading to
JDK 11 at that time.

As with JDK 6 and JDK 7 Updates Projects in the past, a suitable
party may step forward to maintain this Project once the final 
Oracle-led JDK 8 Update release has been published. If such a party is 
nominated, we will discuss how to best enable such a transition on this 
Project's mailing list.
