The actual issues raised were about obligation and liabilities incurred
by Debian much more than whether we have permission to include it.
(The purpose of the license is to trade the permission with obligation
I don't see Sun having a position on the amount of obligation and
liability Debian should accept and how such position would be relevant
to Debian policy.
