      Description

      The ASF has a pretty clear opinion about the handling of the GPLv2-CPE. There might be an option to distribute it, but not out of the box. After the transition of NetBeans from oracle to the ASF there was a timeframe were use of the Oregon State University was ok, as the transition was happening. I think we stretched that limit to the max and thus I consider this a blocker for the next release. The nbjavac needs to be moved of ASF controlled infrastructure.

      There are various options:

      • Oracle could publish nbjavac to maven central
      • Oracle could provide a custom updatecenter distributing the nbjavac
      • Oracle could relicense javac
      • Apache NetBeans could switch to the eclipse java development tools

      Not all of these options are realistic, but publishing to maven central is perfectly doable.

      I'll mark this as a blocker for next release, so it is not ignored.
