OpenJDK installation instructions for Fedora – now on

Thank you Mark Reinhold for reaching out to make sure the OpenJDK website was ready for the Fedora 9 release with instructions on installing OpenJDK 6/IcedTea 7 under Fedora 8 and 9 and EPEL 5. Full instructions are here:

Mucho appreciado a Andrew Overholt, Andrew Haley, and Lillian Angel for technical and functional edits. By the time Mark Reinhold was done, they were transformed from this into something consumable. ;-D

This also brings full circle the question I raised in another post, “Where is the “Now available in Fedora” button for OpenJDK.” It’s right there on the front page. (Also posted on Dev Fu.)
