I am confused about how are we to deal with projects with the word
open in their name. Openbravo suggests using the Sun Java 1.5 runtime

in GNewSense so why not?

Why is it that we argue against using the word open, if the dependency
name  has the word open?

There are other projects on Savannah that contain the word Open in
them, granted some of those are derived from another project that has
the word open in its name but there are others that do not. Were those
