Project Proposal: Build Infrastructure Changes
In accordance with the OpenJDK guidelines for projects [1], I hereby 
propose the OpenJDK Project "Build Infrastructure Changes".
This Project will be used for developing major changes to the JDK build process.
A list of some of the goals include:
  * Drastically improving the turnaround on full builds
  * Provide a reliable way for incremental builds to work
  * Simplify the makefiles drastically avoiding unnecessary nested makes
  * Allow for parallel building with make -j
  * Allow for 32bit builds to happen on 64bit systems
  * Allow for use of more portable build tools (compilers etc.) where possible
This work will be done in a separate set of repositories.
I propose this project be sponsored by the Build Group [2] and that I 
be the initial moderator of the project.
