Thanks. I hadn't seen the full list, but I knew it'd fairly small
given how much importance compatibility has been given in the past and
Unfortunately it is not possible to gauge how much Fedora will be
affected by that :/ My biggest concern would be for apps using sun.*
APIs. As mentioned above though, it should be a small percentage.
Does it impact also our Java? Anyway you will need exception if you want
Java 7 as a feature for F-16.
