The DNS servers for the domain became highly unstable earlier
today.  The actual OpenJDK site servers were not affected but the usual
hostnames failed to resolve, rendering the site mostly unusable.

About six hours ago the top-level DNS records for the domain
were changed to point to new DNS servers.  DNS records for top-level
domains persist in server caches for up to 48 hours, so your local DNS
server might not be able to resolve any domain name until some
time on Friday.

If you need to access an OpenJDK web site in the meantime then you can
temporarily add the following to your /etc/hosts file or equivalent:

(Note to Oracle employees: and its subdomains have
 been usable from within the Oracle network all day since different
 DNS servers are used internally.)
