@Jim Michaels:

The distribution of a JRE was something that Sun and Oracle provided in their
distributions.  There are Java dependencies in OOo.  Of course, Sun and Oracle
were free to distribute the JRE as they saw fit.

In the forthcoming Apache releases, release of binaries
(packages and installers) are constrained differently.  Whether a JRE can be
bundled or not needs to be figured out.  If the ASF determines that a JRE
cannot be bundled with a binary distribution, the release will need to deal
with cases where there is no JRE already installed and the user is
unable/unwilling to install it.
