Subject RedHat moving to OpenJDK
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2012 19:46:01 GMT

This post,,
and this post,,
by David Walluck, one of the JPackage maintainers, suggests that
RedHat is moving to OpenJDK:

"I used to rewrite and try to submit notes here for JDK 1.6
integration with RHEL 5, but thank you goddess, Red Hat and Oracle
have worked out a decent deal to make OpenJDK the new standard and
integrate suport much more effectively."

"Finally, Red Hat seems to have largely switched to OpenJDK. This is
what JPackage is using for builds as well. There has been no need to
build a nosrc.rpm for a while now, assuming you're willing to give up
the Oracle JDK for the OpenJDK in your base OS."

How do people here feel about this move?
