Hi all,

**Important - please remember to sign-up to the
adoption-discuss at mailing list and reply to this thread

We have a couple of projects that *may* fall nicely into OpenJDK itself.
Just as a heads up I'm holding off on proposing any for a week or two until
the virtual-images, betterrev and jitwatch projects go through somewhat of
a 1.0.0 release.

For reference, the following projects (or parts of projects) may have merit
in terms of being part of OpenJDK proper, see and details on these projects:

* Betterrev (patch review and build farm system)
* virtual-images (developer vm in a box)
* Jitwatch (JavaFX tool to visualise JIT compilation)
* Lambda tutorials (TDD driven tutorials for learning this Java 8 feature)

When in doubt, we'll opt for a 'continue developing it outside of OpenJDK
until it makes sense to move it'.  With that in mind it may be far too
early to consider any of these projects or the code artifacts they contain!

Having any code / projects going into OpenJDK is a big commitment and needs
lengthy discussion first, so comments / feedback is welcome!
