JDK 15 is now in Rampdown Phase Two

Rory O'Donnell


Hi Simon,

Per the JDK 15 schedule, we are in Rampdown Phase Two [1]

Per the JDK Release Process [2] we now turn our focus to P1 and P2 bugs, which can be fixed with approval [3].
Late enhancements are still possible, with approval [4], but the bar is now extraordinarily high.

Please advise if you have any open high priority issues.
