java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin should be installed by default. Here is the relevant

Why wouldn't it be in the browser section?
I thought the description of the Java group matched java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin's

categorization is fine by me, as long as java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin actually

Fedora 8 Test 3 i386 - 2.9G - 2007-10-04 and
Fedora 8 Test 3 x86_64 - 3.5G - 2007-10-04.
Both DVDs say Fedora 7.92

Fixed with the manifest updates for F8 final (pungi-1.1.6-1.fc8)
