This is a very unhelpful attitude to take, and not the way I think the
GTK+ community should be responding to people interested in assisting
with GTK+.

Sun is interested in making contributions to the GTK+ project; we will
work with them to make sure that that the work they do aligns with the
goals of GTK+ and is useful for everybody.

As Dermot has responded, the version of TET that they are planning to
use does not use Java, so this turns out not to be an issue at all.
