I'm really not interested in convincing the Eclipse legal people to 
change their process.  That is their business alone.

We host snapshot builds which are probably what you are looking for -- 
builds that have been shown to pass a good number of tests.

The reason Harmony has not shipped it's first formal release is because 
it has been our intention all along to use the JCK to test for 
compliance with the Java specification.  As I hope you know, there is an 
impasse with our receiving a suitable license for the JCK so far.

You tell me what part of the release is 'pseudo' (i.e. fake) and I'll 
object to it! :-)  Seriously, it's either a proper release or it is not, 
there is no concept of pseudo-release.
