Default OpenJDK package

OpenJDK package
In the faq8 i have read that:
"Due to Sun's restrictive SCSL license, OpenBSD cannot ship binary packages for the JDK."

OpenJDK is Gpl.

Will be possible to have a package?

Sometime in the future, yes, for Sun's license was only recently changed. For now, however, one still has to compile the port as outlined in Section 8.3 of the FAQ:
