Something what I missed to do on the Java package bug 1008880, is to add the disable command for automatic update checks for Java. As mentioned on that bug the following changes have to be done:

File: ~/Library/Preferences/com.oracle.javadeployment.plist

<key>deployment.macosx.check.update</key>
<string>false</string>

(In reply to Dustin J. Mitchell [:dustin] from bug 1008880 comment #20)

When doing those changes we should do the same for Flash, so that bug 1008879 is only about the installation.
For now this is OS X only, given that we manage updates on Ubuntu on our own.

Mark, a long time ago I setup some puppet manifests including Java (bug 1008880). Given that we don't need that for a puppet solution for us anymore, I want to ask if we should get rid of the Java manifest. I think no-one updated it in all the last months and it's totally outdated.

Yes, if there is no need for it, I think it should be removed.

This will just remove the package to clean things up which I did a long time ago.
