Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Re:[] RE: EclipseCon memory stick andGanymede M5

Have we considered negotiating with BEA for a different license? They and Oracle are Strategic Members and we may have some latitude here, no? And, actually, the same should be true of IBM. They should be clamoring over who gets to be the official JRE of Eclipse. I must be missing something here...

Unfortunately, that license has the same problems as the Sun license, specifically that it requires the Eclipse Foundation "to defend and indemnify BEA..." - that's a risk that the Foundation is currently not willing to assume.

I used to work with the JRockit team at BEA so I asked them. Is their license is OK?
