From reading that link I see that the class libraries do not appear to be released under the gpl. I don't think you can call that "of minimal effect".

Also, the faq also says that it is the version 7 code that is being released. Version 7 will not be stable and released for years yet, given that version 6 is not out currently. This makes the release useless for anything other than fooling around with. Wake me up when the release a *full* code base for a finished product suitable for use in production (and that passes the tck).
