Check again :) Thanks to Erik Joelsson we have consolidated (and then 
converted) a bunch of "old" repositories:

- https://github.com/openjdk/jdk6
- https://github.com/openjdk/jdk7
- https://github.com/openjdk/jdk8
- https://github.com/openjdk/jdk8u
- https://github.com/openjdk/jdk9
- https://github.com/openjdk/jdk9u

Note that jdk7u is missing, we are still working on that one.

Yep, see above.

Since jdk8u is actively being developed using a Mercurial forest we can 
unfortunately not do live mirroring. The Git mirrors of consolidated 
repositories can only be updated every tag (and even that is not always 
certain). Due to this we will update the jdk8u Git repository on a 
best-effort basis. The Git repository at 
https://github.com/openjdk/jdk8u is currently consolidated (and 
converted) up until tag jdk8u292-b01.
