Thanks for releasing this. I have updated icedtea6 to include it.

Are you planning to support a mercurial repo for openjdk6? Although your
release notes below helped a lot, it is still hard work to review all
the changes for integration if all you got is just the diff between two
full versions.

For those interested I posted the b09-b10 diff here:
(Excluding the new/deleted (gervill) files)

Posting individual changes and/or having a public repo might also help
understanding smaller things that you don't explicitly mention in your
release notes like the changes to java.c, or
ChunkedInputStream/test.txt (also removed from the diff since it is
essentially a binary blob).

Removed icedtea-xinerama.patch from icedtea6 which did the same thing.

Thanks, I removed the icedtea-color-profiles.patch and the overlay.

Very nice. We had good experience with this code in IcedTea.

It wasn't clear precisely which upstream version of Gervill you are
including. It does look like you are missing some fixes Karl and I made
since it got integrated into icedtea. For example you miss the sample
rate conversion support. But it is somewhat hard to see because all the
files got completely reformatted from the upstream sources.

You should be able to find all the changes we made on the mailinglist
(sound-dev, distro-pkg-dev and audio-engine-dev) and of course in
Gervill CVS (or
icedtea6 mercurial under overlays).

Could you make the changes you made to the upstream sources available
separate from the changes you made to the indention of the sources for
easy comparison?

For now I kept the current upstream/icedtea version.

Very nice. I removed the patches/icedtea-hat-spl-gpl.patch.
And this also closes:

And I saw was also removed, which closes:

The general tracking bug for hopefully all these issues is:

That would be cool.

I am also happy to note that Lillian and Tom added jtregcheck to the
Fedora rpm builds in addition to running the Mauve tests. The test
results output (just the jtreg -v1 output for now, not yet the full
JTreport and JTwork output) are then included in the src subpackage rpm
and in the build logs.

Which is great because it also allows us to easily monitor the (zero)
ports that Fedora ships like ppc and ppc64. For an example see:
Click on the build logs (build.log) and search for "JTREG TESTING".
The results still have a bit too many failures because it doesn't
currently provide a Xvfb wrapper like it does for Mauve. But that is in
the works.
