fact that Java2 is non-free (and not even redistributable) is not my decision,

You seem to believe that I was a sort of dictator (nominated by who, BTW?) who
had the power to decide what goes or does not go into Debian. If you think so,
may I suggest that you understood nothing about the way Debian (or any
volunteer effort) works?
Go ahead, stop whining, package Java2 and try to upload it. I never had the
power to block it. Sun's lawyers have it. And the Debian FTPmaster also has,
too, because he is officially in charge (I never was) of preventing illegal
packages to be distributed in Debian (because carelessness of one packager
could endanger the whole Debian project if Sun sues us).
So, if you think I had any power, go ahead, take it. Disclaimer: do not tell I
didn't warn you.
