Hi Phil,

I think there is a communication problem here, it's perfectly fine and
acceptable to put this under an OpenJDK Project sandbox, and in fact
it makes all sense.

The argument is on actually doing it and starting this process, so far
every time Laurent has been told something different and when he
approached to start it, somebody (as authoritative as it can possibly
be!) told him something different. Indeed, his contribution is pretty
big, probably the biggest external contribution since a lot of time,
and is difficult to handle that, but it seems to be also rather

So the question now is what it needs for Marlin to get started as part
of the Rasterizer Project perhaps, but finally moving the discussion
away from the Process, and toward the merit of the actual code.

Btw, I'm happy that *you* replied, this hopefully means this step is
finally starting! :)
