But is really the whole picture that many java programs don't need to rely
on Sun's (or other certified) JRE to work properly? I try at regular
intervals and FreeMind and SimplyHTML still don't work properly with GCI;
we read recently that there were issues with Azureus.
So, I still think that we need to make the difference between free and
complete implementations, and the original issue, which wasn't answered,
is that the Java policy needs to be updated, and packages be adapted, best
before complete freeze.
