This makes no sense to me.

The GA milestone is for 1.6 build 19 that is what we have tested.

Unless someone knows about a particular bug in b19 on OS/2 - it makes a
lot more sense to use resources to include the MOZ PLUGIN we all need,
instead of wasting developer resources on something that no one feels
have any priority.

IMO - this ticket should belong in 'ENHANCED' and MOZ-PLUGIN ticket should
belong in GA

b22 is on the vendor branch. Will try to merge it with trunk now.

Finally merged it. BTW, the merge took very long (several hours) and I could only manage it with SVN v1.6.16 (v1.6.1 each time failed with "Out of memory" error after about one hour).

Will prepare READMEs and other stuff for the release.

I really hate OpenJDK build system. It's absolutely unreliable. Failed so many times already... In particular, you have to constantly hack makefiles to build thing you want instead of the whole JDK (this seems to be the only supported mode in the build system). Accidentally, one of the hacks slipped in while merging b22 which resulted into yet another build fail.
