Missing latest source snapshots for JDK-6

Hi Dalibor,

much thanks for your valuable hints.

My desire is a _matching_ quadruple of
- Windows JDK-6 binary, preferably the official from Oracle
- Windows JDK-6 fastdebug binary
- source bundle
- doc bundle

The last matching quadruple I have is Update 20, but after it becomes difficult.

On the official download page http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html
I get:
- Windows JDK-6 Update 27 binary
- Universal JDK-6 Update 25 docs  4 Apr 2011
- Universal JDK-6 Update 23 source bundle 12 Nov 2010
- No Windows JDK-6 fastdebug binary

I think it is fair to expect matching bundles.

 From http://download.java.net/openjdk/jdk6/ I get a Build b23 OpenJDK source bundle. But to which 
official Update does it match?
On http://download.java.net/jdk6/source/ the link Java SE 6u23 Binary Snapshot Releases 
<http://www.java.net/download/jdk6/6u23/promoted/b05/binaries/> refers to 6u27 release
On http://download.java.net/jdk6/6u10/archive/ there is a link to JDK6u25 Build b03 
<http://www.java.net/download/jdk6/6u25/promoted/b03/index.html> sources, but there I find 6u25 EA 
binary and 6u25 EA fastdebug binary, which is fine, but no matching 6u25 sources as stated.

So many things are in disorder. Can someone arrange this?

As I'm on Windows, self-building is not an option. :-(

I hope you got my mess.

Yes, but I also would accept OpenJDK source bundles, as they seem be 99% the same. The problem is, 
which build matches to which official Windows binary update.
