Incorrect bootstrap jdk in documentation

I was building jdk8 and noticed that your documentation generally states
that you need a jdk 1.6.0 as a bootstrap, in the following files:
When I tried to build using 1.6.0 I received the following:
ERROR:Your BOOTDIR environment variable doesnot point
to a validJDK for bootstrapping this build.
A JDK 8 build must be bootstrapped using
JDK 1.7.0 fcs (or later).
Apparently, your bootstrapJDK is version1.6.0
Please update yourALT_BOOTDIR settingand start your build again.
When I retried using 1.7.0 as a bootstrap it was fine. I presume those files need to be updated to reflect that you now need at least 1.7.0.
