IcedTea fork of OpenJDK

This news has been around for a few days, but I heard it first from the JavaPosse.

Red Hat has forked OpenJDK and plans to fill the encumbered gaps with GPL code in the newly formed IcedTea project (details here).

Eventually they hope to contribute the changes to OpenJDK, but what kind of contribution/governance model will they want? Will Red Hat happily sign the Sun Contributor Agreement? Meanwhile, will IcedTea qualify as an OpenJDK project and gain access to the JCK?

Lot's of fun to be had...
