Depends on what you want to patch.  Changes to specific Group or Project
pages should go to the appropriate Moderator.  Use web-discuss for the

Yes, but then people'd have to remember not to pay attention to the
incorrect text on the actual svn page.

It sounds like we should look into restructuring the svn top-level.
Right now we have:

    /branches					; empty
    /tags					; empty
    /trunk/www					; old web content

We could change this to:

    /branches					; empty
    /trunk/jdk7					; was jdk/trunk
          /www					; old web content

Make sense?

(I've taken the opportunity to rename "jdk" to "jdk7" in order to make it
clear that it's the code for jdk7 rather than some earlier release, which
has also confused some people.)
