Where are my shiny jdk11+1 binaries for download ?!

It would be nice if version information was always correct, which would
mean part of the checklist of creating a release repo would be setting the
release date of jdk/jdk/ 6 months later and marking it "ea" and updating
the version to self-identify as java N+1.  jdk binaries built from jdk/jdk
have been misidentifying themselves since the jdk 10 repo was created.
