We can use the con call next week as the forum.

Just to summarize *Ideally* what we would like, here's a list:
- We don't want to modify any classpath code. If we need changes, we
can work with classpath folks.
- We don't want to add classpath sources to our tree. this will avoid
local changes.
- We want to add classpath jar snapshots to our CVS/SVN (preferable).
- We want to add classpath jar to our installer to distribute a
working JVM/JRE in a single download.
- We want to enable a commercial product to be able to sublicense the
complete JVM/JRE.

To be clear, so as no-one feels they've been misled in the future, this is not what we'd like in the best of all possible worlds. In that world, classpath would be relicensed under the AL, or a compatible licence.

What's listed above is a position we can live with.
