"open" and "free" have so different meanings to different people :-)

The GPL contains requirements on top of what is required by the Apache
Software License (and the opposite is also true, at least for GPLv2). An
ASF release is supposed to mean "there won't be any obligations beyond
what the Apache Software License asks for". That's why the license
compatibility list exists.

It's not unlikely OpenJDK used the one from Harmony, but I don't want to
speculate. In either case, Harmony should be a safe origin for us.

A big thank you for looking into this.

I'm not really familiar with the Harmony code base but you may be able
to find tests in there as well.

My fault, I must have been checksumming the wrong file, all is good.

Many thanks
