Oracle and SUN Simon Phipps of Sun has responded to the recent criticism of Sun's openness, pointing out that even releasing information that they may already have costs a lot of money. "Jonathan asked me to look into this, to ensure we're pursuing an open path across all of Sun, not simply the software group. We take all input seriously, and we can't solve all problems for all parties, but we're committed to doing our best to faithfully engage with all the communities we serve, in the same spirit as the existing Open Source Ombudsman Scheme. With the support of my team and others in the community I'll try to build a new scheme that is fair and transparent."

Just words, words, words and no SPECIFIC solution.

"I've done a cursory check and I believe answers of "no, we can't help" fall almost exclusively in the first four classes above and mostly in the first two."


Yep which ones, which ones do NOT fall in there, etc? Can you give specifics?

This is beautiful but void of content:

I agree, Pedro. All words, and nothing solid to judge me by. I have to start somewhere though - Jonathan only asked me to do this on Sunday after all.
