I was addressing the fact that you took it upon yourself to _tell_ the mailing-list readers that the port was released to early. You aren't the maintainer of this or any other port. Therefor unless you stick an "in my opinion" in there you kind of sound like an ass... I made no comments about the reliability of Java on FreeBSD although I have read there are issues (thanks for assuming I didn't) but I use it routinely without problems. > Perhaps you should try working with Java 1.4.x on > FreeBSD before you > assume something about me that's highly inaccurate.

Why don't you tell me _why_ Java 1.4.x only works nicely on _your_ system when running as root?
