RE: [] RE: EclipseCon memory stick andGanymede M5

The sad thing is that almost all commercial vendors that distribute the Eclipse platform, also redistribute the Sun JRE under the redist license. Yet we are preventing it here.
That's certainly frustrating. The Eclipse policy on licensing really prohibits a true user friendly experience for Eclipse packages. Until we figure out a mechanism that allows this, our hands are tied.

So, then, unless someone from BEA or Apache wants to help get theirs on the stick, it looks like it's going to be a JVM-free experience again this year. Still not the end of the world, of course, but it would have been cool to have a fully-self-contained Eclipse Ganymede w/ p2 installer on a stick.

  FYI, Sun appears to allow free redistribution of its

  Bjorn/Janet would such a license be acceptable for the EMO?
