I asked our current sponsors about OpenJDK 6 and none asked

Yes, we need to investigate that. I just stumbled on a few packages
with "openjdk-6-jre | java6-runtime" in their dependencies (like
"entagged" or "389-console").
A complete list should be made to see the impact and decide what should
happen to those packages...
