new packages: java-1.8.0-oracle only in server channels?!

Latest response

It appears this (RHEA-2014:1731-1) was only released in the server channels. Would it be possible to have it also released in the workstation channels?



The packages should be available for Workstation as well (I just checked on a live system), specifically, in the rhel-6-workstation-thirdparty-oracle-java-rpms repository. I see that you posted the question on 10/29, and that errata (Enhancement Advisory new packages: java-1.8.0-oracle) was on QE at that time -- which may be the reason why you couldn't see the packages.

To complement my answer: I have learned that the errata was initially really issued with the server packages only. It was then corrected and reissued with all the other packages as well.
