I know Geir has been working on this, but it popped up on my radar 
again... I think we have a serous problem with Javamail unless sun is 
willing to relicense it.  The license is here

I think the biggest problem for us is this section (near the bottom):

(vi) you agree to defend and indemnify Sun and its licensors from and 
against any
damages, costs, liabilities, settlement amounts and/or expenses 
attorneys' fees) incurred in connection with any claim, lawsuit or 
action by
any third party that arises or results from the use or distribution of 
and all Programs and/or Software.

Does the ASF allow us to ship software from ASF servers that contain 
dependencies that have this kind of language?
