Summary0017642: java-1.8.0-openjdk-1.8.0_262 packages not available for CentOS 6 or 7
DescriptionApologies if this is not the right place to raise this.

Upstream released packages for OpenJDK 8u262 last month; see:

* (RHEL 8)
* (RHEL 7)
* (RHEL 6)

I can see that CentOS 8 AppStream has a package, e.g. java-1.8.0-openjdk- at

The equivalent doesn't seem to have been published for CentOS 6 or 7 updates, though, e.g. checking:

* (latest us 8u252)
* (latest is 8u252)

and likewise checking for updates in the normal way with Yum; nothing offered for these OS versions.

I waited a while since I know these packages have sometimes taken longer than "normal" to get built in the past; for instance, last time (ca. April), they coincided with the 7.8 release.

Is the absence of these packages for 6 and 7 known and/or intentional - have I missed an announcement somewhere? I can't see anything relevant on the CentOS-announce or CentOS-devel list archives for the past few months.
TagsNo tags attached.
