I hereby propose the creation of Project Kulla [1] with myself as the
Lead and the Compiler Group group as the sponsoring group.

The goal of the Kulla project is to investigate the creation of a
Read Evaluate Print Loop (REPL) tool for the Java programming
language.  For more details see the JEP [2].

The initial Committers will be:

* Robert Field
* Steve Sides
* Jonathan Gibbons
* Brian Goetz
* Alex Buckley
* Mark Reinhold
* Maurizio Cimadamore
* Vicente Romero
* Jan Lahoda
* Paul Govereau
* Joe Darcy
* Dan Smith
* Iris Clark
* Andrew Gross
* Eric McCorkle
* Joel Borggrén-Franck
* John R Rose
* Kumar Srinivasan
* Andreas Lundblad

The project will host at least the following mailing list:

* kulla-dev for developers

and may eventually host specification lists if one or more JSRs is
subsequently created.

The initial source of this project will include some code cloned from
the JDK 9 repository.  We will follow a "commit first, review later"
policy, as any inclusion in the JDK repositories will be done by a
"curated merge" where select changes are extracted into new
changesets for incorporation into JDK repositories when they are ready
for inclusion.

Votes are due by September 10, 2014, 9A GMT.

Only current OpenJDK Members [3] are eligible to vote on this
motion.  Votes must be cast in the open on the discuss list.
