It was an off-list mail to Ron about the latest draft in the database, 
the text was:

"Thanks for the updates, here are a a few remaining things I saw with 
the second  draft:

The portion copyright information should include Sun Microsystems, and 
the trademark section should mention Java.
One thing I'm not sure about is that the java interpreter man page used 
in parts in a section of the document is licensed under the GPL, so 
licensing the document under GFDL seems like an odd choice - I assume 
the mechanics of that combination are handled through the 'These 
excerpts are being used in accordance with their respective licenses.' 

I assume I could also have put it in the bugtracker entry for it, but I 
don't know whether those show up on this list, though.

Jeff and others have asked (minutes say 6th August I think) about 
getting in touch with the right people to get involved to discuss the 
issues you and others have collected, the phone call Ted mentioned would 
be that.
