As you may have noticed the java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin package (which
came from the java-1.6.0-openjdk src.rpm) is gone with the latest
java-1.6.0-openjdk in cauldron.

The openjdk plugin has been replaced by the icedtea-web which has been
imported in the cauldron repos (spec stole^W borrowed from Fedora),
the if you already had the java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin package,
icedtea-web will replace it automatically and hopefully there should
be no update/upgrade problems.

(This is mostly just a heads up for the benefit of "where did the
java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin package go?"; icedtea-web provides
java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin so urpmi will pull the package, but no
java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin will show up in rpmdrake).
