[OpenJDK 2D-Dev] Who to contact about potential JAI licence change?

I consulted internally and here is the text I was given:
Unfortunately we have no plans to deliver further work on JAI. We don’t
have plans to re-host the source code now that the previous location,
java.net <http://java.net>, is no longer available. If we got many more
requests as yours it might be possible that we would find a new home for
the previously open-sourced code but always under the prior license.
The due-diligence work to determine if it could be open sourced under a
different license will not be resourced.
