I don't really have any schedule guidance beyond "it's going to be busy this month" as we try to clear out everything in the "Partially done - on private branch" section of <http://wikis.sun.com/display/OpenJDK/Mac+OS+X+Port+Project+Status>. We are close to landing the Aqua Look and Feel, so look for that in the next day or two - but it will be broken in several key areas like Screen Menu Bar, or rendering system art, as we need to re-plumb the relationships between the Cocoa AWT and Aqua.

We usually try to sync with BSD within a week of a major event in their repository (like a merge), but it's a background task we try to interleave with the Cocoa porting work and fixing oddball build breakages. ;-)
