Where does one fix a Java Web Start bug in openjdk 6?

Looking in the openjdk 6 source tree, I don't see the javax.jnlp source tree anywhere.  In Java 6u2, this code is at:


but in the openjdk (openjdk-6-src-b14-25_nov_2008.tar.gz) there is no directory named "jnlp".  Is Web Start included in the openjdk?  I see it in openjdk 7 (jdk-7-ea-src-b47-jrl-12_feb_2009.jar), but openjdk 6 is missing the entire "deploy" directory tree.

If I submit a fairly trivial fix to openjdk7 in the Web Start area, is this fix likely to get brought back to openjdk6 and back to JDK 6?  (Comparing JDK6u2 and jdk-7-b47, this file is little changed.)

Also, looking at the list of mailing lists at http://mail.openjdk.java.net/mailman/listinfo, I don't see a page that seems to apply to Web Start or Applets.  What list is the most appropriate place to discuss Web Start issues?
