Let me be be more clear

I know icedtea is not yet complete as a 1.7  but is 1.6
the security updates  and  updates in general are handled as  any
other project as apache httpd server to mention one, I mean  there are
security updates ?? .  and  is  icedtea ready for production with 1.6

This is because I have a project comming and I'd like to use icedtea
and  of course send patches if I found any bug I can fix.
