Will this Oracle decision be affecting us?

http://www.h-online.com/open/news/item/Oracle-retires-licence-for-distributing-its-Java-with-Linux-1332835.html

Also, is this only JDK related, or is the JRE package affected too?

No expert on these matters but it reads like we will need to switch to OpenJDK.
