There is a workflow - one that I think is over-used - of creating 
backports and
closing them as "not an issue", or "will not fix", as a way of making it 
that "we didn't just forget about this release, we made a decision 
documented here".
Sometimes they are created and closed like that all in the blink of an eye.
That's not exactly what happened here, since I think there may have been an
intent to fix that was rescinded, but probably it could be considered to 
that better by its presence than its absence.

> Or will a new backport be createad with openjdk7u as target release?

* If you pushed to the new openjdk 7 without doing anything, then a new 
backport will
be automatically created when you push
* If you create a new one manually, assign to yourself, target it to  
openjdk7, then that one
will get marked fixed when you push
* Or, you could re-open the existing one, target it to openjdk7u (and 
assign to yourself)
and it will be marked fixed when you push. However I think the workflow 
I documented
above will then be messed up.
