Perhaps Author would have been better than "Maintainer".
In lack of feedback (I rarely use forums) I haven't
touched the article since updating/verifying it.
With immediate feedback I would have fixed it right away.

I will update the article now but Johnny is welcome to update it
further as he now have access. I'm not totally digging the structure but
there was too much there already for me to rearrange it or verify the
other parts of the article. I think keeping 1.6 current covers must use
cases atleast.

Perhaps the actual building/installing step should be one single section
but with smaller alternative stubs inline for each Java version. Since all in
all, the instructions are similar regardless of JVM version and it might
make it easier to maintain, what do you think?

Userprefs fixed in my profile...
