Uhh.. Let's not go overboard here on exactly what Debian has done with
Sun's JVM. Technically, Sun's JVM is *not* part of Debian. The license
is (and even this is hotly debated...) acceptable enough for Debian's
ftp-masters to allow the Sun JVM to be distributed off Debian servers as
part of the 'non-free' archive. This *certainly* doesn't make it
OSS-compatible by any stretch (it isn't) and it's not acceptable for
inclusion in Debian proper.
I think I can tell which side of the debate you were on.
I'm actually rather upset to see Sun making such blatently incorrect
statements. Josh, I truely hope that you weren't actually involved in
the Sun JVM-in-Debian work and so were unaware of the very important
distinction between "Distributed by Debian" and "in Debian/main".
Keep your pants on, geez. I'm actually rather appalled that you could
get so unjustifiably bent out of shape at me *after* we met. Goes to
show you that not everything is improved by personal acquaintance.
Let's get some stuff clear:
1) I do not speak for Sun execept on specific occasions arranged by Sun
PR. Not ever.
2) If you re-read my message, it says:
... (it's now available for Debian, for example) ...
not ANYTHING about main or distributed or non-free or whatever.
So, I think you owe me an apology.
