java-1.6.0-openjdk (only on i386 and x86_64) we will need to ExclusiveArch ppc it.

In accordance with out guideline of not replacing RHEL packages we need to remove them. there are possibly others. Im going to get together a list of packages that moved from EPEL to RHEL. I will mark them dead in cvs and remove them from the repos.
In the past we left the packages in the repo until CentOS had released their latest version (CentOS 5.3 in this case) + two or three weeks for people to update to it. I assume that will be the case this time as well?

Karanbir Singh posted this on his blog a few days ago:


CentOS 5.3 has been on the streets since April 1.


Somewhat OT: Any chance of EPEL shipping a working Firefox Java plugin?

it is working... provided you replace the whole java stack with EPEL's build. See also https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=494265
