Looks like it's not a staging issue but installation. jxpiinstall-6u10-fcs-bin-b29-windows-i586-06_aug_2008.exe from /net/koori.sfbay.sun.com/jdk/6u10/latest/bundles/windows-i586 is not signed as well.

This was not introduced in b29.  I just checked b29, and it is also not signed.

I think the problem is the order.  We copy the online installer to jxpiinstall.exe.  In 6u7, I believe we do it after the online installer is signed.  In 6u10, we must do it before.

RE will manually sign this in 6u10.  We will fix it in the Makefile in 6u11.
