Some more press coverage:

Article by Gavin Clarke:
"Red Hat: Java Linux license does not go far enough"
18 May 2006
<http://www.regdeveloper.co.uk/2006/05/18/red_hat_sun_java_license/>

Brian Stevens, Red Hat CTO, told The Register that the new Java license
(DLJ) is not enough. Sun should open-source its JVM.
Mark Shuttleworth, CEO of Canonical, said that DLJ will accelerate
development of Java on Linux.
The article ends with the following sentence:
"DLJ also has support from Gentoo and Debian".


It's sad that Debian is giving the impression of approving of this
license so lightly...  :-(
