[wtp-pmc] FW: Clarifying Java EE DTD/Schema licenses

Sounds like the death knell for redistribution of the J2EE DTDs/Schemas.
If I learn anything else, I'll let you know, but for now WTP will have
to assume no redist.

Ultimately this is a question for lawyers, and IANAL.

My belief is that the copyright/license information in the individual
files overrides the general information at the bottom of the page.

Still, these files are available to you as a Java EE licensee under the
terms of your license, so the license here may not be relevant to you.
