[opensuse-factory] New icedtea6-1.10.1 / openjdk b22 + icedtea-web-1.0.2 is going to Factory
Hi all,

I've sent a submit requests for new version of java-1_6_0-openjdk and
new icedtea-web package. This change follows upstream change, where the
Java webstart (JNLP) and plugin implementation were moved to separate
upstream project icedtea-web [1][2].

There are several reasons for that

* users will know the plugin implementation is not a part of openjdk
* ... and will know how to sue if their favourite applet will not work
* separated release cycle
- no need to rebuild complete JVM due a bug in plugin implementation
- hopefully faster development and more releases improving the

I hope I've fixed all corner cases during a testing, so update will be
smooth. If not please drop me a bug.

Regards
Michal Vyskocil
