In this case it is a more mundane version check failure:
javac thinks its version isn't 1.6.0, but javac 1.6.0-internal

Yes, that would be idea. At least for openjdk6/icedtea we seem to be
pretty close actually. It will be more challenging for openjdk7. I
haven't quite figured out all the dynamics around "workspace
integration". But I assume we can get the master tree to zero fail and
then demand that any integration cycle doesn't introduce regressions.

Making it configurable, or even ignorable with keywords would be crucial
for distribution testing. Most distributions don't allow their build
daemons to access the network. But for quality control it is essential
that they do run the full test suite.

I haven't made an inventory of what services would be needed on a
machine to be replace javaweb.sfbay.sun.com with a public machine, but
we can certainly run some services on icedtea.classpath.org or maybe one
of the openjdk.java.net machines.

:) Well, the whole idea behind IcedTea is to provide an OpenJDK
derivative that doesn't depend on any non-free build or runtime

But I am certainly interested in comparing results. I do think OpenJDK6
and IcedTea are now so close that we shouldn't be seeing any test result
differences between the two.

That brings up the question how to export a JTreport/JTwork environment.
I only posted the text results http://icedtea.classpath.org/~mjw/jtreg/
since the JTreport and JTwork files have all kinds of hard coded
absolute path references. It would be nice to be able to export it all
so I can upload it to some public site for others to look at and compare
