Java, is any other Java flavor affected by this?
Comment 4 Daniel Black (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-09 00:13:27 UTC
from ref url:
"The fifth, sixth, and seventh issues are addressed in the following releases:
JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 6 and later"

does that equate to version sun-jdk-

Seems to be by the filename and following the prompts on the sun website.

need dev-java/sun-jdk >= stable I assume

We can't stablilize any 1.5 JDKs currently. They are all package.mask'd because they cause serious problems:

Additionally, sun-jdk is slotted in such a way that all version in slot 1.5 are in ~arch currently.
Comment 7 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-09 12:57:01 UTC
As Josh says: none of the 1.5.x JDKs can be marked stable, whether they are from Sun, JRockit, IBM or any other vendor, on _any_ platform.

Stabilizing a 1.5 JDK will lead to massive breakage for our users. Leave the packages in ~arch until our migration is complete and they can be safely stabilized.

Unsecure versions of 1.5 should of course be removed from ~arch, and replaced with secure ones.

sun-jdk- fixes this as well, but is already stable, so I did not mention it (probably should be noted in a GLSA, though). Since we have no stable Java 5 version, we don't need to mark .06 stable.

Thanks  Carsten, Josh, Karl.
