Remove the Java Licensing text from the installer

Upstream bug:


We're no longer using Sun Java; users need not agree to the Sun Java license to install -workstation on Lucid.

Also, we should handle this better, since I bet it will arise in the future. I propose that we have a "Note, you agree to the licensing at http://debathena.mit.edu/licenses" and then have links to any necessary third party licenses.

Having heard a resounding chorus of crickets, I vote that we remove the text from the installer, and


  • Tell users they're agreeing to the license when they download the installer


  • Not care.

I like the licensing page.

In any case, this was moved to production as part of moving something else in install-debathena.sh to production.
