What happened to Red Hat's java-1.7.0-openjdk, given that's where Oracle's comes from? Also I think there's a typo in the Fedora one. I don't know of a java-1.7.9-openjdk. Impressed with the speed at which Mandriva updated from our 1.6 update.

Oh, in the previous announcement for Thursday... Odd that Oracle's is listed twice!

Yesterday's Oracle listing was for the IcedTea update they picked up from Red Hat's RHEL6, today's Oracle listing is for the IcedTea update they picked up from Red Hat's RHEL5. They cannot just rebuild the Red Hat source releases like with other packages since they have to apply patches to Fix DISTRO_NAME to "Enterprise Linux". So it might take a little longer.
