FOSDEM 2009: OpenJDK 6 and Project Coin

I was pleased to attend and speak at my first FOSDEM conference this year. The classroom setting of the Free Java Developer Room was certainly different than the cavernous session halls of JavaOne! My talks were on OpenJDK 6 and Project Coin:

Mark spoke on modularity and overall plans for JDK 7 and Alex spoke on progress towards a universal VM.

Another enjoyable aspect of FOSDEM for me was meeting in person a number of people I'd corresponded with over email who had contributed to OpenJDK 6, including Karl Helgason of Gervill fame and Andrew Haley and other IcedTea engineers from Red Hat.

Comments:

Thanks for joining us at FOSDEM, Joe - it was great to meet you again.

So it's a month later: where is the Project Coin submission web site? Or, where is the "temporary" mail list that was supposed to be set up?

I looked at openjdk.java.net, but no mention of Project Coin appears.

The Project Coin OpenJDK project and mailing list are now live:
http://openjdk.java.net/projects/coin
http://mail.openjdk.java.net/mailman/listinfo/coin-dev

Send in your proposals for consideration before March 30, 2009!
