yes, and most likely not to change.

this is for binaries distributed by Oracle.

It's nice to hear that you are supporting Debian squeeze, however Debian never
did release OpenJDK 7 in squeeze. Or do you suggest helping to support
OpenJDK-7 in the upcoming Debian wheezy release?

Again, best join the discussion on debian-java, and step up for things you are
able to do.
> If you are not supporting java 7 what is the official repository or source that should be used to install java 7 on debian squeeze?
If you don't create one, there is none.
