Is there a wiki (or other source) on the github backport process using Skara tooling?

Subject: [11u] Announcement: Switch to Git/Github for 11.0.13 release cycle


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.

Best regards
