Per the JDK 11 schedule [1], we are still in Rampdown Phase Two.  The
stabilization repository, jdk/jdk11, is currently open for P1-P2 bug
fixes and late enhancements per the JDK Release Process (JEP 3) [2].
All changes require approval, either via the Fix-Request Process [3]
or the Late-Enhancement Request Process [4].

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.

We’ll tag the first Release Candidate build one week from today.  All
changes for JDK 11 must be in jdk/jdk11 by 15:00 UTC next Thursday,
16 August [6].
