We (Skolelinux/debian-edu) have an agreement with SUN to distribute the J2RE 
as part of Skolelinux/debian-edu. This agreement was made some time ago, and 
please remember that SUN has recently modified their Java license (, or at 
least proclaimed doing so). So I'm not entirely sure whether or not this 
change in license text may influence our agreement with SUN in any way. 

I haven't checked it, but my personal gut feeling is "no" ... 

You'll find all correspondence associated with this agreement in 
in the path:

With regard
