Slackware distributing Oracle Java


since Oracle has canceled the 'Operating System Distributor License for Java', how is Slackware going to handle this? Will Java just be removed from the official repositories or will there be a change to OpenJDK?

Please check this thread for more information about this topic.

One suggestion that was made there, is that Slackware may provide the SlackBuild script(s) and users would have to download the JDK/JRE themselves and run the SlackBuild script(s) to create the Slackware package(s) themselves.
