Default Request for help: OpenJDK6 IcedTea Java plugin

Quote:
Hi,

Due to a lot of user request I've started working on a port for the
OpenJDK6 IcedTea Java plugin which works with Firefox 3.6. As I never
used the Java plugin and I'm not very experienced in the Java world I
need some help.

So if you have some experience test it and report back to Beat Gaetzi.

Oliver it is safe to assume that you will not find the person with that level of competence on this forum. The above post also indicate that the guy who is making such request probably has no skill to complete the task. The person to talk to is

tnn+AT+NetBSD.org

who ported IcedTea to NetBSD. He is helping our (OpenBSD) effort.

This is any interesting article which will explain the things. In particular the last part is related
to Java plugins

jkim@ though also released his openjdk6 port today:

He mentions somewhere (not in that email) that a lot of the port originates from pkgsrc, so I assume communication with tnn is happening. Hopefully this'll become a reality!
