I'd like to clarify. I could have activation, javamail, jdbc-ext, 
jndi, jta, which are Sun products, included in a Tomcat tarball
but couldn't have them included in a separate tarball ?

Thanks to explain us why ?

I allready removed the problematic stuff from jpackage project 
but I'd like to have a simple explanation of what to do with
Sun jars.

The question is, should Apache host projects which depend
on non OSS APIs which are entirely under Sun control (Jon/Pier ?)

We should feel much more confortable with projects like
puretls/cryptix and openjmx. Hope to see an OSS alternative
to javamail and jta....
