We have a couple of projects that *may* fall nicely into OpenJDK itself.

I can see jitwatch having value in being part of openjdk itself, since it
is directly related to openjdk.

As to the other projects I'm not sure why you're trying to move them. Both
github and bitbucket are much more preferable places to actually do
development work. Openjdk is an implementation of Java SE, things like
virtual images, tutorials and betterrev aren't part of Java SE. That's not
to say they aren't great projects or valuable for community openjdk people
but that isn't a good reason to start proposing they become top level
openjdk projects.
