Yet another JDK1.1 llicence question
Please cc me as I'm not on this list...
As the ftpmasters have finally gotten around to looking at the latest
jdk1.1 packages (they sat in queue/new for over six months), the
subject of java licensing has again arisen. Attached is the amended
debian/copyright file I am proposing to put into the packages. Could
you please give me your collective opinion on whether this is
acceptable? Otherwise, I'll simply have the jdk1.1 packages pulled as
"Farcical aquatic ceremonies are no basis for a system of government!"
