there's this: https://wiki.openjdk.java.net/display/SKARA/Backports. Maybe it is not quite "final" yet.

For anybody interested in trying out the Skara backport process, you could do backports in 16u, 13u and as of today, I guess 15u, too.

I'm sure the Skara team is welcoming any feedback ��

Best regards

> Hi,
> I'd like to hereby officially announce the transition of OpenJDK 11 Updates to
> Git/Github/Skara with the 11.0.13 update release cycle.
> After having a call between the 11u maintainers and Skara folks, we agreed
> to execute upon the initial proposal [0]. So the switch of the jdk11u-dev
> repository should happen on or around June 2nd and jdk11u will be switched
> on or around August 3rd, as per the 11.0.13 schedule [1].
> The Skara tooling for backport releases seems to be in good shape already
> and we think that by the time we start using it in 11u it will be mature enough
> for our purposes.  In the call Erik and Robin showed the tooling for backport
> releases and they could positively answer the questions that we found to be
> still open from maintainers perspective.
> The JBS item for the 11u transition is
> https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/SKARA-935.
