Interesting. Thanks for the history. Yes, then we should get in contact with the ops team to check out what's feasible. Hopefully times have changed a bit and it's easy to configure hgupdater for new versions.

Yes. They have done that stuff for several updates (e.g. 11.0.1, 11.0.2, 11.0.3) already, so it should be possible that they'll help with further OpenJDK 11 updates.
