Well, there is nothing stopping just a few rpms from making the repos - in 
CentOS 4, Johnny and I decided that we would actually NOT build the java stuff 
at all, the legal situation and the fog around the whole java issue was way too 
dense at the time. However, I am under the (wrong?) impression that some of 
those issues may have cleared by now. And would like to get the entire Jboss and 
java stuff in rhwas done for c5plus.

What I am sort of hoping for is that someone who has $clue > 0 w.r.t Java and 
associated issues, steps forward to try and help with this issue.
