I agree some,if not all, could definitely be retired.  Maybe someone
should propose JavaMail as a JSR for J2SE 1.7 so that it can be
incorporated in Classpath too? ;) I suppose the usefulness of the list
depends on active development.  The website is sufficient to host and
promote the existing code IMO.

FWIW, my limited knowledge and a cursory glance at the website show
GlassFish as dual-licensed under the CDDL and GPL:

as is NetBeans now.  I think it's even CPL with Classpath exception ;)
Both are free, but CDDL is GPL-incompatible.
