Hi,

As Sun announced, Sun's Java will now be under the GNU GPL subject to
the classpath exception. I don't really know much Java, but can
someone decipher the classpath exception license (link given below)?
Can someone give a more elaborate interpretation of the terms of the
license?

http://www.gnu.org/software/classpath/license.html

Also, the Classpath exception doesn't seem to be listed in the list of
recognised opensource licesnces - http://www.opensource.org/licenses/
