That doesn't sound like they're putting out JDK and JRE
under the bsd license... more likely it's a less permissive
license which still allows redistribution.  The biggest question
is whether it's a Free Software license or not.  If yes, then
I'd like to know whether it's GPL-compatible.  Unfortunately
these questions are not answered in that article.

Who has connections to Sun or to the FreeBSD foundation and is
able to get us an answer to this question?
