"Contributions from Foundation members through open collaboration will
be integrated to further enhance the platform. The Foundation will
make selected components available as open source at launch. It will
then work to establish the most complete mobile software offering
available in open source. This will be made available over the next
two years and is intended to be released under Eclipse Public License
(EPL) 1.0."

And the license is at http://www.eclipse.org/legal/epl-v10.html
