    I'm really happy that after months of arguing and analysis, we
    finally agreed on using the GPL version 2 with the classpath
    exception as the license for JavaSE. We're also taking the first
    couple of baby steps in getting actual source code relicensed. All
    of it will follow, eventually. But there's a lot of work to do,
    like migrating millions of lines of code from TeamWare to
    Mercurial. For extra bonus fun, we're open sourcing Duke.
