I don't think distros will do any TCK testing. They will assume that any 
build passes TCK as long as we claim that we did pass it. It is quite 
different, Java conformance (in the sense of passing TCK) or just 
another Linux Java implementation along with kaffe and gcj with 
classpath. Do kaffe and gcj have TCK certification on all distributions, 
is it really needed?

Under testing I meant that distributions will test compatibility between 
Harmony and the media libraries versions which are used in distribution
