I hereby propose the creation of the Mobile Project with myself 
(Bob Vandette) as the initial Project Lead and the Porters Group as 
the sponsoring Group.

The Mobile Project will focus on porting the JDK to popular mobile
platforms such as iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile.  Oracle plans
on contributing build system, Hotspot and JDK source changes required 
to target mobile platforms including the ability to produce static 
Java runtimes and modifications to the Zero interpreter required 
for iOS ARM devices.

I have been working on Java for over 15 years, focusing on Java SE 
Embedded and mobile platforms for the last 9 years.

The initial Reviewers will include all current Reviewers in the JDK 9
Project plus Gary Adams and Bertrand Delsart, who have in the past
contributed significantly to Oracle's embedded Java products.  The
initial Committers will be the current set of Committers to the JDK 9

Votes are due by 9:00 UTC on Monday 12, October 2015
