I think you read far too much into that. But I agree that referring to
an implementation of their product as "Java" might be interpreted as
overreaching. If you truely have entered into this agreement and you
believe this agreement with Sun affects you when you do work for GNU
Classpath then please contact me and/or licensing at directly so
we can give you direct specific advise.
Lets keep the classpath list mainly for technical matters.
