My understanding is that Sun is finally looking for help from the open source
community with how to open source Java in a way that works for everyone.
On a related topic, I do not work for Sun but I am one of the community leaders
for Sun's http://java.net open source development site. During the past year,
we developed a Gentoo-based LiveCD which we are planning to call a "Java
distribution" and as part of this we have been in contact with the people at
Sun who are responsible for the new Linux license. I have also met with these
people this week at JavaOne.
Have developers from the gentoo-java group been selected yet to act as Gentoo's
representatives to Sun for the new Linux distribution license?
If not, I would be willing to help any representatives get connected with the
people in Sun who are responsible with interfacing with the Linux distros.
