I dusted off submitted bugs for gdesklets. Boy, I feel lazy to check out most of them especially after the desktop computer went off and it took a month to get a new motherboard under warranty. After rereading bug #187516, it turned out to be an upstream issue. Good thing workaround are already published and it is time to update that package including patch.
According to this Press Release via OS News , it appears Sun Microsystems allow the redistribution of their Java development for Linux distributions under a new license called Operation System Distributor's License for Java or in short "Distro License for Java". Currently, only binaries are licensed as the source code is not available for the public although SUN promise to open source Java . I wonder if that announcement will affect the whole GCJ on which Fedora Project is focusing. Pour les francophones: Selon cette note de presse via OS News, Sun Microsystems permet la redistribution des binaires Java pour les distribution de Linux sous la nouvelle license nomm&ecaute;e License des distros pour Java . Je me demande si cette annonce affectera le développement de GCJ.
