I might be interested in attending remotely, do we know what day it will be?

If I read [1] (and its links) right, there are less than 60 bugs left in
Ubuntu at the moment.  If so, I suspect a small passionate/dedicated
group of people should be able to do it in time for quantal.
  I am not claimin to be a "passionate/dedicated" indiviual, but I could
be convinced to assist with an upload or two.  On a related note, how
many of the bugs are filed in Debian and do we have a usertag tracking

[1] https://wiki.ubuntu.com/JavaTeam/Java7Default

[2] That is, other than:
User: ubuntu-devel@lists.ubuntu.com
Usertags: origin-ubuntu precise ubuntu-patch

Which is not very good to find only openjdk-7 related ones.
