It's JavaOne time again, and Sun's collection of Java technology licenses includes a new addition, the Distro License for Java, aka DLJ.

On a cursory glance, I'd agree with what David Walluck said on debian-legal, it's a rather odd license choice, which seems to in part address some of the problems from the BCL, but in exchange seems to add a bunch of new ones.

I hope the forthcoming discussion on debian-legal will clear it up.
