I have no guidance until you sort out the issue of Java with all of the GeoTools based projects. There was recent interest in configuring a build box against OpenJDK 7 (no interest has been shown in OpenJDK 6). I would recommend catching up with Ben on this subject (as he seems to be the only community member with hardware to donate for the activity). We could also talk to SAC and see if they would be willing to run a "jenkins" build box?

I think the best you can hope for is to make these applications available with a note they are running in an "unsupported" configuration. If you have volunteers willing to test; you may be able to detect failures and bump them from the release.

For my own part:
- I am unable to investigate a failure in OpenJDK 6. An OpenJDK 7 is available for mac now; which may allow me to reproduce any problems found in that environment.
- uDig 1.3.2 is being delayed as I recover the build process from a transition to Maven which LISAsoft started (thanks!). While 1.3.2 is expected shortly; I am having some technical difficulties.
