New question: new build?

There has been accumulated work on jdk7 and on going work, didn't mean to
imply otherwise. But some of the infrastructure teams like the release
engineering team (and to some degree me) need to juggle our time between
the jdk7, openjdk6, and various update releases.
Not everyone has to juggle like this, there are teams working mostly on
Openjdk6 has an immediate schedule we need to meet, and it's very likely that anything
done to Openjdk6 to 'open' it up will transfer to openjdk7 too, so there
is likely some benefits to openjdk7 here.
