My guess is that when asked, they would probably say that it's OK to make an exception in this case since you already run software that implies the same SUA. If we haven't really asked a lawyer if that's indeed a lawyers opinion, then perhaps it would be worth doing that?

Hi,
Why must a user approve the EPL license over and over again when installing content from Eclipse.org? Can't that approval be regarded as implicit given that he uses the Eclipse IDE?

IANAL but to me it's rather obvious that nobody will disapprove this particular license ever. If someone isn't happy using it, how can they continue using Eclipse?
