Hi Mark,

This might have slipped through with all the excitement around JavaFX
being liberated and all the new JEPs. But it would really help us if you
could take a quick peek and point us in the right direction.

It would be good for us to make sure we all distribute the same
javax.script javascript support, whether it is ClosedJDK, OpenJDK,
IcedTea or the MacOSX port. Users probably would like to be sure it is
all compatible and supports the same features.

Maybe it is already in the distribution legal notes somewhere, but we
looked and cannot find it (maybe we looked in the wrong place). Assuming
you are redistributing Rhino under the GPL/MPL there really should at
least be a conspicuous notice stating where to find the modifications
used to make the binary Oracle is distributing (MPL section 3.6 and/or
GPL section 3).
