I looked though the list archives and other than commits by lillian, lkundrak and yourself its the only other commit since the package was created. I worked with lillian as i was developing the changes to add support to the spec file to build using the zero engine it was done as part of Secondary Architectures as defined http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures This commit is part of the same effort. Fully integrating the asm that sun released to enable java to work natively on sparc architectures. These patches need to head upstream. I planned to work with Lillian this week to ensure that they do. We can now build openjdk for 32 and 64 bit sparc linux. previously the patches that went upstream only allowed 32 bit to be built. We are still getting F-9 completely built so we need these patches commited to F-9 so we can build the latest java-1.5.0-gcj since it uses the javadoc from openjdk to build the documentation which in turn will let us build the rest of the java applications.
