Where have all the "fastdebug" builds gone?

Just to be clear:
- I know that this an OpenJDK mailing list
- I know that http://jdk[6,7,8].java.net/download.html contains Oracle
- I know I can build OpenJDK fastdebug build myself (even on Windows:)
But I just thought that some of the Oracle folks on this list may know
why 6u25 is the only release
for which the download page currently offers debug builds:
while this is not the case for any other release (nor before 6u25 and
neither after 6u25)
Thank you and best regards,
