If you means that IBM and SUN JVM are free as beer, I think you are
right. But if we speak about freedom, I think you are wrong (but I can
be wrong, I just refers to 

Apparently your project requires proprietary software and cannot be
hosted on Savannah for this reason.

Savannah is willing to provide resources and time to
developers writing Free Software that can be used
without the need to ask for permission to a proprietary
software vendor. 

If, someday, you get free of those dependencies (see for more informations),
do not hesitate to resubmit your project.

        Thanks for your understanding,
