Greetings and welcome to the OpenJDK 6 project!
At Sun we're still working on wrapping up some technical details and
remaining internal reviews before the first public release of our JDK
6-from-7 code for this project
(http://blogs.sun.com/darcy/entry/forward_to_the_past). The initial
source drop will probably just be a tar ball, with Mercurial
repositories to follow a bit later. There are a few remaining
engineering tasks that will be more efficient for us to handle
internally with the old but familiar teamware SCM rather than Mercurial.
Currently there are still some failures when running against JCK 6a and
the code base has the same remaining encumbered binary plugs as JDK 7
(sound, SNMP, imaging API).
I look forward to working with the broader community on this project to
create a compatible and fully open source Java SE 6 implementation.
