Starting from the start of the LTS cycle.

No, the whole point of making OpenJDK 7 the default implementation is
that we can drop the support for OpenJDK 6. Even upstream (Red Hat)
recommends to use OpenJDK 7 for long term use now. I have done
everything possible to make users aware of the change. At the moment we
are in a grace period because we don't want to surprise admins who, for
instance, run Tomcat or Jetty. But by now they should know that OpenJDK
6 is unsupported and that we strongly recommend to switch to OpenJDK 7.
On 26 June we simply complete this process by making OpenJDK 7 the default.
