This will result in 5 times the network traffic. For a person who is not
interested in historical data it will be the least optimal solution.
Unfortunately openjdk.java.net does not offer a source bundle download
I would suggest one of the following:
Both of them support the resume of the download with 'wget -c' or
graphical download managers, and both of them will result in much
smaller download size. Of course RPM then needs 3 layers of unpacking,
while drops of icedtea 7 will require some manual work to put the tree
together to make it buildable.
