Amazon Corretto 18 is now generally available
At some point i came across a page listing the changes that Amazon had made, relative to the upstream. There wasn't mich for Java 11+, but there were a number of backported fixes for 8. Can't find it now.
But Corretto itself is open source, so someone sufficiently interested could diff that to the upstream:

Other companies, like Amazon, take the Oracle-developed and licensed OpenJDK, build it, and put the binaries on their website. You can even go to the Amazon Corretto repo and see that the code there is licensed and developed by Oracle.
