I think enough DDs agree that the FAQ with the 'please ignore' label is
irrelevant to make Walter's opinion worth considering, this time.

In the interests of promoting free software, providing good advice to our
users and not misleading them that our personal views are project views,
would the DPL care to reconsider the declaration that we don't have
effective replacements for Sun Java?  There is much good work in the free
software Java implementations in debian and things seem to run out-of-the-box.
