 Hello!  My name is Jacob, and I just joined as an OpenJDK contributor the
other day.  I have a plethora of ideas regarding new methods to add to
existing APIs; however, I'm not entirely sure how to go about proposing
them (or, at least, *where* to propose them).  Specifically, I was looking
for the mailing list that covers Java's Collections API, but I'm not sure
which one that would be (if I had to guess, it would be jdk-dev).  I've
read over the "How to Contribute" page as well, but I'm still confused
regarding how to build the JDK (or even where to get the files from to make
changes).  If anyone could provide me with some tips that helped them when
they joined, I would be very grateful!

Hopefully the formatting of this on the mailing list doesn't look that bad!
