Thanks. I won't be at JavaOne this year though. Note that the FAQ
doesn't just cover Java SE and OpenJDK, it also covers Java ME and
PhoneME and Java EE and Glassfish. It would be great to have this
historic document preserved, even if it gets marked "original" and not
updated anymore. It is especially great in showing the intent of the
historic move towards the GPL. I'll make sure to also keep a copy up on
icedtea http://icedtea.classpath.org/openjdk/java/faq.jsp.html

While you are writing a new FAQ, could you at least fix up the links now
to point to the historic FAQ. There are at least two links on the main
http://openjdk.java.net/ page that link to (subsections) of it. And I am
sure there are links to it all over the interwebs. So putting it back at
its original location would be ideal. Cool URIs don't change!
