Your hard working committer reps (Dani and I) are actively
involved in the discussions around being able to ship a bundled
JRE along with select EPP's packages and in Oomph's installer.
You can follow the details in the minutes:
In particular, in June this was approved:
But as the notes suggest, the vote was subsequently voided due to
lack of notice on the topic prior to the June meeting, with more
details about that in July:
Since July, it was further discussed in the IP Advisory committee
(which I attend, though not as regularly as I should; lots of
discussions around spec processes for Jakarata enablement among
lots of lawyers) and at the face-to-face October board meeting;
those those minutes are not linked yet.
You can see the players involved and you can imagine that behind
those players are large legal organizations that tend to move
slowly and to be highly conservative. I feel the trend is now in
the right direction again to get this on track eventually... But
I wouldn't start holding my breath just yet!

By the way, I'd like to use this as an
opportunity to remind that (according to our experience with
Corrosion/Rust EPP) some EPP packages really fail at
reaching their full audience because of https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=506244
. I can't wait to read some news from the Board or EMO about
is also involved in the removal of aCute from SimRel: if
including a JRE in EPP were approved (like it seems to be
for Docker-based deliveries), then we may have seen more
interest in aCute shipped as EPP and aCute would have been
forced to remain in SimRel.
