OpenJDK Updates Project Builds

In the past Oracle provided builds of OpenJDK updates. Now that we're
maintaining JDK updates outside Oracle, these are missing.

There are many organizations producing OpenJDK builds, Red Hat
included, all with subtle variations. As project lead, I believe that
our users need pure "vanilla" binaries, fully TCK'd, equivalent to
those Oracle builds, for reference and for production use.

With the co-operation of AdoptOpenJDK, we now have early access
preview Linux and Windows binaries (currently x86-64 only) at

These are (for now) built and tested at Red Hat, and signed by me as
Update project lead. I thank Red Hat for the use of its build and test
infrastructure, Severin Gehwolf in particular, and AdoptOpenJDK for
their help.
