Is it time to remove sun-java6?
A few of us have been discussing the removal of sun-java6. It is
non-free, orphaned, buggy (including security bugs), and can generally
be replaced by openjdk. There are only three reverse depends left and
none of them directly depend on sun-java6 but instead dep on java6-runtime.
There has also been some similar discussions in Ubuntu with some users
reporting that some web sites and packages don't work with openjdk but I
have not seen a lot of concrete proof.
My personal feeling is that we either need to remove it or fix it up.
