You were probably dreaming about Sun "dropping its claims" to Java; there's no reason they would do that. They did announce in November that they "will release all unencumbered source-code modules of JDK 6 and JDK 7, along with full build scripts; a few encumbered modules will be released as binary plugins." ( http://www.sun.com/software/opensource/java/project_overview.jsp ) " Q: When will you finish open sourcing the JDK? What is the timeline? A: We expect to release a fully buildable JDK based almost completely on open-sourced code in the first half of 2007. " ( http://www.sun.com/software/opensource/java/faq.jsp ) As far at the timezone updates in the Diablo port, I had no problems downloading the tzupdater-1_0_1.zip file with /usr/bin/fetch. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
