Hi community,

I submitted the new version of java-1_6_0-openjdk to Java:openjdk6:Factory.
This release contains:
* openjdk b14 (25_nov_2008)
* icedtea 1.4 (-e34ba0ba2281)
* IcedTeaPlugin is now default
* PulseAudio integration
* hotspot from jdk7
* fix of bnc#465624 - use a %{_libdir}/java-1.6.0-openjdk-1.6.0/
* used a same plugin alternative name as Sun Java
* ( --> javaplugin)

Testers are welcome, mainly issues described in:
* bnc#430401
* bnc#430401
* bnc#43674

Firefox plugins. They may be fine together, but I would not really know
which was being used, had problems, etc. I was thinking, could I just
alter the update-alternatives command in your howto to

# update-alternatives \
--install /usr/lib64/browser-plugins/ \
$JRE_DIR/jre1.6.0_12/lib/amd64/ 10

and it would therefore be available to choose along with tis new one
(and do the same with the iced-tea plugin?), and then remove the
