Yeah cool. I've already checked it out.
I'll try to address Jim's 'complaints' as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, the legal side of the story doesn't seem to pan out as
easily as I expected. I received feedback from the FSF that the
copyright is held by the FSF now, and there is no such thing like a
grantback procedure. Instead, the original contributor is automatically
granted back most rights that are covered by the copyright. The FSF and
Sun are apparently discussing how to solve this problem. (FSF wouldn't
sign the SCA generally because this means that the contributed code
could also be used in commercial distributions, but they could make
exceptions for special cases like this).
