What Phil Race said was exactly the case. We didn't have time to get
all our regression tests opened up before the OpenJDK launch. We are,
however, in the process of doing it. The first thing that you're likely
to see is some infrastructure that all of our (Swing) tests require to
run. After that's available we will pump out the actual tests as fast
as we can.
We'll post more information to this list when we have a better idea of
when things might be available. Hope you understand.
