“Free Java” is an interesting name for a devroom track.  I guess I could
talk about freedom problems with the Java culture of never building
software recursively from source, and introduce how we’re approaching
this problem in Guix.

The Java bootstrap could also be demonstrated in that talk.

(Does anyone know how this is done in Debian?  Do they actually build
all of their Java packages from source?)
