I have written a new debian/copyright file and pushed it to
experimental. Maybe you can use it as a starting point for the final
release. I can confirm what you wrote. There is at least


which is non-free according to its license terms. I believe the other
clauses are O.K. They are licensed under the GPL-2 with classpath
exception or the CDDL and some files contain code fragments once
licensed under Apache 2.0
