Does this mean that there will be no Java 1.6.x implementation in F-17?
Java 6 SE will be EOL'd in July 2012:
I assume that OpenJDK6 will stop getting updated around the same time.
For transition, I had planned for java-1.6.0-openjdk to be in F17 and
have it provide "java6, java6-devel, etc." so as to ensure that it
doesn't get into the buildroot unless explicitly specified.
However with a July '12 EOL date, it sounds like it'd make more sense to
remove it from F17 completely.
What about a Java 1.5.x implementation?
GCJ (java-1.5.0-gcj) will be available in F17.
