Why not?

It's a big job to answer all that.  Ultimately it will be limited
by the number of people available to do the work, and we're trying
to plan all that.  Be aware that full OpenJDK support is only
available on a few platforms, so there are gaps to fill.

I'll try to get all the status updates done soon.  We've only just
completed JCK certification for OpenJDK in Fedora, and that ought
to be plenty for a little while.

If I haven't updated the web page in two weeks please bug me about
it.

Andrew.
