During the coming week, we will make sure that any potential quirks found in 7u-dev as a result of the osx integration are fixed before next weeks (Thu 9th) build promotion. This means that from next week on the regular promotions will contain OS X bundles just like the other platforms. We will soon also make the jdk7u-osx  forest read only. All fixes related to the Mac OS X port should from now on go through jdk7u-dev  and jdk7u-dev at openjdk.java.net.
I am concerned. There was some discussion when various changes went into
7u-osx regarding the suitability of the changes for inclusion in the
mainline repositories ie 7u-dev. It was my understanding that there
would be a more extensive review and, if necessary, clean up process,
before those changes were merged into the mainline 7u-dev. I have only
seen that happen for a couple of specific issues.
