  • How about mentioning that they waffled on the decision?
    Q1a: yes
    Q2a (fair use): unanswered
    most of the rest: basically in google's favor (aside from timsort's inclusion)
    ruled not in google's favor: that sun's statements were enough to decide that they didn't need a license.

    etc.

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
