Red Hat, Java 6 SR5 is available now. SR6 is due to GA around 9/25 (give or take a few days). IBM would really like at a minimum, SR5 and if possible SR6.
I believe this should be reassigned to releng to pull the packages in that we already make available asynch.

SR6 is available in the JTC (JIM) website, so we plan to start testing same Java on current RHEL6 build.
Please let us know, in case we need to stick to SR5.
