Thanks Max.

1) is what we do with IcedTea, although we don't publish any binaries,
but the various distros do.
2) Where can I find these?
3) Why are these not published under the same terms as the rest of

Are these closed repos something different from the binary plugs in 2)?

I couldn't compare. But since icedtea[7] is based on these source
releases the build broken when the source archive name changed.
