Hi all,

> overload existing OpenJDK contributors"
Thanks Martijn - I like it. I believe the key purpose of a mission 
statement is to be direct about what should be accomplished, and this 
does statement does this very well.

Within teams I run at work I also like to supplement the mission 
statement with strategy and/or core values, with the analogy being that 
the mission statement is your destination, the strategy is your map and 
values act as your decision-making compass. Perhaps these supporting 
statements would be a good place to be more specific about our approach?

Best wishes,
