per Ted on today's call

Similarly a reference that Dalibor had sent an email on Java 
matters this morning, but which I did not receive, and which 
does not show in the piperlail archive.

May I have details on both, and an invite as to the former?

While I will not squawk as to a 'trial use' java requirement 
inclusion, which drags in the NDA and indemnification covered 
code, a last minute addition 'flipping the switch' beyind that 
is not something the LSB as a community have 'reached 
consensus' on:


'The Linux Standard Base (LSB) is a Linux Foundation (LF) 
project to develop, through consensus, a set of standards'

Clearly both I, and Alan Cox, have expressed, and documented 
serious bases for reservation out of Java full inclusion.
