Hi Mark

I'm not a release engineer, but AFAIK, there are 3 kinds of builds  
here we can do at Sun:

1. Using only the opened repos:
    Sorry, they do not build.

2. Using the opened repos plus the binary plugs:
    Build OK, and -version shows openjdk...

3. Using the opened repos plus the closed repos:
    Build OK, also emits the binary plugs, and -version shows JDK...  
This is probably the version you find on 

The two builds are probably using different environment variables also.

You mean the 19_dec date? I think this is because the whole build  
process generates source bundle, executable, and binary plug, and  
Xiomara's script automatically republishes all of them into multiple
