The following IBM Java releases just came out, fixing the Sun stuff from bug 212425.
6 SR1 and later
5.0 SR7 and later
1.4.2 SR11 and later
I can see only 5.0 SR7 released yet. Delays between the slots are unfortunately nothing new for IBM, like releasing fixed version more than month after the advisory...
True, I only checked 1.5. It took me until now to understand that the terms "GA" or "SR7" for the download links are actually version specifiers.
Okay, first round of stabilization!
distfiles as usual (ssh d.g.o:~caster/tmp)
you'll have to use repoman commit --force due to bug 216198
ppc stable, re-adding x86/amd64 for dev-java/ibm-jre-bin.
forgot to commit that one, amd64/x86 stable.
dev-java/ibm-jdk-bin-184.108.40.206 and dev-java/ibm-jre-bin-220.127.116.11 are in release snapshot.
18.104.22.168 bumped, it wasn't yet stable so no need to.
Vlastimil, it has been more than six weeks since the IBM alert, and they still have not released 1.4.2 SR11.
Do you have any upstream contact, to ask for an ETA or speed things up?

Yeah that seems to be usual there :(

Not myself, and I think nobody else from the Java team neither?
... finally! :-)
Arches please stabilize:

Adding all open blockers of the old bug...what to do about them?
Wrong bug for the blockers, sorry for the bugspam.
