Ultimately its up to you and your reading of the JRL about what is
required. The result of what I believe is required is the patchset
download page -- basically I require that a user agree that they
are a licensee (of the JRL) in good standing before they can download
the patchset. This is pretty much what Sun requires too.
Obviously option 2 below has the least legal risk for anyone since the
main source will still be downloaded from Sun. However, I wonder how
long that source will last.
