Is it possible that "they" is not completely clear here? When editing, I thought it meant the two projects (Java SE and OpenJDK) were developed independently. But, you see to be reading it that the *bug fixes* were developed independently. Is that right? Certainly, we could clarify "they" here ...

The next sentence:
That said, one week after Oracle released its fixes to Java, OpenJDK 7 was updated to reflect all of the fixes.
seems to say that. Is that not making sense or incorrect somehow?
