    For example, what would be the decision on "runs on version 6 of Java"?

The general criteria is the same as always: it needs to run using only
free software.

In practice, what that means for Java is that it should run (and
recommend) using something like openjdk, icedtea, gcj, classpath.  The
developers should have actually tried it and confirmed that it works.

"Version 6 of Java" sounds like he is using the original Sun JDK which,
unfortunately, remains distributed under a proprietary license, even
though the bulk of the code is also in openjdk now.
