Sorry?  what?  I keep seeing statements both from Oracle employees as well as their supporters in the Free software community that there are no examples of any problems getting a TCK for OpenJDK derivatives.

Is that not the case?

If true, this seems like an excellent thing for the new OpenJDK governing board to address immediately.
