Can someone explain the changes to Fedora that will come from the recently announced (yesterday) agreement between RH and Sun?

Red Hat, Sun finally buddy up on Java

Essentially Red Hat would be able to contribute specifications and code directly to Java. There is a strong Java based in Red Hat (GCJ, Eclipse and recently JBoss and so on) and JBoss already had some relationships in place which would spawn out better with the recent setup.

You would get a fully free and open source Java sooner in standard form and likely grow the pace of development in Java esp with Linux related issues and get a better packaged Java for distributions. Just some opinions and my take on it.
