markand at Melon ~ $ pkg_info -r openjdk6-b20_4
Information for openjdk6-b20_4:
If you add openjdk6 from pkg_add -r you will add these depends from
packages too, and these could be outdated. And as I said some people
don't like to install binaries and I agree with this. If you install
openjdk6 from ports you will build all this depends from ports and
every ports will be up-to-date.
I don't understand what you don't like in my patch, it prevents
installing diablo-jdk and it's easier to build from ports without
installing binaries before. Okay, I agree people still can add
openjdk6 from binaries to bootstrap but if you want only ports this
patch could be better in any case.
