Connecting the dots - Ubuntu and Java

Sun announced back on November 13, 2006 that they were going allow use of Java under the GPL. As a developer, I think this is great news of a variety of reasons.

Four months later, checking the Java Roadmap and Java Integration topics on the Ubuntu wiki and Launchpad seem to be ... stale. Seems that Sun has done what they needed to do. What is left is for the Linux distributions to incorporate Sun's Java as the preferred implementation of Java on Linux?

Who is driving this? Where is the discussion? The problem is too many places to look, none obviously right.
