That's not possible as Oracle does not own the copyright for every file 
in the repository (example: dictionaries). My approach would be to start 
with the whole list of files in the repo, remove all things I know that 
are problematic, create a diff to the list provided so far and have a 
second look on this difference list for possible "naughty bits".

Everythings else (history etc.) can be sorted out later.
