OpenJDK installers for Win/Mac?

The early-access page for jdk 11 ( <>) links to installers for Mac and Windows for the Oracle JDK build, but the OpenJDK builds are plain archives only.

The installers provide additional platform-specific integration (e.g. the /usr/lib_exec/java_home utility on Mac, and various other integration tools on both platforms).

The OpenJDK build would surely benefit from this additional integration, too.

Is this a temporary oversight or intentional? Will OpenJDK get installers?
