I might have missed it. Are they already available somewhere?

There are two different binaries on the site, JDK and HDK.

I thought of a different versioning scheme. A date could be used as a
postfix of the version, e.g. 0.0.20070832, or the date of the M2 milestone.
For example some gcc ebuilds use date when a CVS snapshot is used instead of
an official release.

BTW I didn't find an official document for the ebuild file name format. Do
you know if one exist?
