Hi,

I built the first IcedTea packages into Rawhide today. Here is a comps.xml patch that would replace GCJ with IcedTea in the Java and Java Development groups, as well as install the plugin by default. I'm posting the patch mainly for discussion purposes. It will not work for ppc and ppc64 spins since IcedTea is currently only available on x86 and x86_64. Should we stick with GCJ as the default for Fedora 8 or switch to IcedTea on the platforms on which it is available?

I am strongly in favor of getting IcedTea as the default for the platforms it is available especially since we can enable Java VM and applets out of the box (in a secure way unlike GCJ).
