At the time of this writing (2005-Nov-28 15:23 Pacific), sun-jdk- marked unstable/testing (~x86), not masked. This usually happens to new versions. They come into Portage as testing. If no bugs are filed after certain period, they go into stable. Hope that helps, -Eddy -- gentoo-java@g.o mailing list
