sun-bcla has several licence files, but they are all referring to the same form ID#011801.
What is you concrete suggestion? Merge them (how?)?
As answered on the PR:
"I do not see reason to merge different license files. This sounds very strange to me. So I close it here."

Merging different licenses is not necessarily strange, if they differ only in details (like the name of the program or the copyright holder). We have done that before, e.g. we merged all the slightly different X11 licenses with MIT. However, here I don't see how we could reasonably do this. Especially sun-bcla-j2me and sun-bcla-jvmstat contain significantly different wording.
Plus, these licenses are legal documents, and I assume that the current copyright holder is Oracle. My advice would be to stay on the safe side, and not unnecessarily expose us or our users to any legal risk.

Nevertheless, thank you for filing this bug.
I see indeed some are not 100% the same. Would you like me to do a new pull request for the ones that are the same if the package name is left out of the files, or should I just close this branch?

AFAICS the only ones that are similar enough that we could think about merging them would be -jms, -jsapi, and -jta.
