One of the most glaring holes to date in the openjdk sources are a 
couple of dozen 2D classes
visible at the API level in the packages java.awt.color, java.awt.image, 
and java.awt.image.renderable.

These have been held back from the sources (but included in the binary 
plugs) until we (Sun)
established we could release these under GPL v2  +CP (ie same as most of 
the rest as OpenJDK)

Just today we got the OK to do that, so at the next opportunity these 
classes will appear
in the open jdk sources.

Due to the hold-up around the mercurial repositories its pretty much a 
certainty they'll
appear first in the OpenJDK 6 drop, probably as early as sometime next week.
