The jdk7 builds at
are for the non-open-source jdk7.
The binary plugs for recent openjdk7 builds
are available in non-obvious places like
but b45 is the oldest available build.
I would like to see all of the historically downloadable bits
to remain available. Current JDK sources for builds back to
b20 or so are available via mercurial, but there's no way to
build them properly without the binary plugs.
