a few questions (#'d):

1. is there a good doc for newbie java open sourcers? pardon the writing - have 2 broken arms.

i have a java 5 app that i'd like to open source with agpl v3.

thinking of distribbing only as source. dependencies are maven managed and have various licenses: public domain, all ASL 2.0 and gpl except one CPL 1.0 (junit) and javax.mail and java.activation (latter req'd by javamail for java 5).

2. should I replace CPL junit with ASL 2.0 testng? so far (bad, i know), i have hardly any tests anyway. since junit is not needed for building or running, does it matter?

3. are javax.mail and javax.activation classes considered system libraries or not? optional for SE, come with EE.

if not ...

3b. is it correct that i need to either modify the license for affected files, or find replacements?

3c. any replacements for javax.mail and javax.activation if i want to be java 5 compatible?

3d. is it correct that i could also move to java 6, in which case even the sun libs are gpl (2)?
