Please ignore my previous message if it shows up, sudo will be committed
I'd also like to squeeze in JDK-6u6 binary too. The instructions only
do s/6u5/6u6 and correct md5 and download size, I just haven't ran it
through all its dependents yet. It does fix a possible security
vulnerability as is usual with JDK releases, so it should technically be
marked as critical (and should be a very safe update).
The real problem with it is, if we keep holding for every version
increment, we'll never get 6.3 out the door. I can easily justify
leaving it alone as the download link always points at the latest
version anyway. Additionally, the older versions are not kept in an
easily found place, and as history has shown, most will simply adjust
the path names for the change if encountered.
If a change is acceptable, it can happen after branching, so please
don't hold on the branch if it is decided to update...and if it is, I
could use a little help testing it against the smaller packages (or OOo
if somebody needs to build it, but I'll do it too when I get to it in a
few days). I'm doing full KDE and then full Gnome first.
