Hi there,

Thanks for the quick replies.

And about OpenJDK6 packates included on Fedora, I guess they are also built using IcedTea. But are they certified?

And I guess correctly openjdk6/7 packages in Ubuntu and Debian are also built from IcedTea? Certification is the same for them or each linux distro has to make their own certification?
