Thank you, Pavel for your work, and for the concise summary of 

At the end of the day, you do not mention if the fruit of your 
'OpenJDK LSB build' effort passes the TCK test suite.

The license document I find at
still references '200____' and Sun, and looks unchanged from 
the past and still with the same problems already noted.  See 
the thread 'LSB conf call notes for 2008-07-30' in the ML 
archives for the issue cluster around it

Assuming a given candidate could pass a given java 
implementation as to the interpreter's conformance to be 
called a Java, there is still the issue of what interfaces 
need to be an LSB conformant application, no?
