At my work, first thing that happens with Java is that Openjdk gets
thrown out of the window and is replaced with Oracle's JRE.

That of course is not going to make openjdk less buggy or 
get more testers, so what I'd like to see is a some kind of 
wiki page of its implications.

- what breaks if openjdk is removed
- what works & what doesn't with openjdk
- what integration issues there are with Fedora/EPEL and Oracle JRE
- what is gained if openjdk can be used and kept in place as a default JRE
- ?

This page should be something to convince to those who remove 
openjdk. Keeping it compact and focusing on that audience.

Removing openjdk is a chicken and egg problem, perhaps that wiki 
page could avoid some of those cases with small effort from Fedora's 


I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder.
