Ubuntu 11.10 VM including OpenJDK Build Image

OK, I get it about the Kernel. However, a kernel OpenJDK is not. The Linux
kernel needs more to make it an O/S. An OpenJDK binary is a complete system
in about 68MB for OpenJDK 7 Mac PPC.

I do understand that the system is not currently configured with a CI. It
does make sense thought to have a CI with the build artifacts which people
can download. Even if it is only a limited set like the last 10 builds.
This sounds very appealing for a number of obvious reasons.

Yes, putting the bits up on a wiki did seem odd to me. I will link my bits
to my current storage account, but I will find a better solution.

Just a thought... we have jdk6.java.net, and jdk7.java.net... does it make
sense to have openjdk7.java.net for binaries from either Oracle, or
community folks?
