There was a thread on jdk7u-dev about cacerts bundled by OpenJDK.

First, I'm not a lawyer (sorry guys) but after some investigations, I
could see Java cacerts are often produced by packagers from cacerts
bundled by Linux distribution.
These distributions (GPL) cacerts seems to came from Mozilla (MPL).

OpenJDK license is GPL also so I wonder why OpenJDK can't provide them either ?
