My question is:

Is still true that openSUSE can not distribute Oracle JRE, or can
it be done?

IANAL but conditions to distribute Java under BCL make it
impossible as part of Linux distribution. Check yourself



is BCL? Oracle Binary Code License Agreement for the Java SE
Platform Products and JavaFX

I suppose it is this:

C. LICENSE TO DISTRIBUTE SOFTWARE. Subject to the terms and conditions
of this Agreement and restrictions and exceptions set forth in the
README File, including, but not limited to the Java Technology
Restrictions and Limitations on Redistribution of these Supplemental
Terms, Oracle grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited
license without fees to reproduce and distribute the Software,
provided that (i) you distribute the Software complete and unmodified
and only bundled as part of, and for the sole purpose of running, your
Programs, (ii) the Programs add significant and primary functionality
to the Software, (iii) you do not distribute additional software
intended to replace any component(s) of the Software, (iv) you do not
remove or alter any proprietary legends or notices contained in the
Software, (v) you only distribute the Software subject to a license
agreement that: (a) is a complete, unmodified reproduction of this
Agreement; or (b) protects Oracle's interests consistent with the
terms contained in this Agreement and that includes the notice set
forth in Section H, and (vi) you agree to defend and indemnify Oracle
and its licensors from and against any damages, costs, liabilities,
settlement amounts and/or expenses (including attorneys' fees)
incurred in connection with any claim, lawsuit or action by any third
party that arises or results from the use or distribution of any and
all Programs and/or Software. The license set forth in this Section C
does not extend to the Software identified in Section G.



see there "DLJ" (Operating System Distributor License for Java).

But that's the JDK, not the JRE, and version 1.6.

(no more available from Oracle site, at least under "canonical"

Ahh... I see. That's the license that applied to distributors, and it
has been removed. I understand. Then we can not do it.
