Bug#569352: sun-java6: Broken URL in debconf to complete license

Package: sun-java6
Version: 6-18-2
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 2.3

Today a call for translation updates was made (only to some lists,
e.g. German and Swedish, but not e.g. for French or to -i18n for new
translations). Looking at the strings the user is requested to accept
a license, where more information supposedly is found on

This page, however, is 404.

While I wonder why those information cannot be stored locally
(probably because it can only be reviewed *after* the package has been
installed) it has to be ensured that the user *can* review the
license before installation.

A possible solution would be to place the license on a server under
your (or Debians) control thus availablility can be ensured during the
entire lifetime of this package.

If that solution would not be possible/acceptable then probably a
larger rewording in the templates would be necessary (instead of a
simple replacement of an URL), so translation efforts probably should
be postponed?
