I will work on this project, together with the build-infra team until
the full JDK,
builds an all relevant platforms. The improved build system is dearly needed
by the infra-team to be able to deliver the fast turnarounds for jprt
and tests that are needed for future development and for sustaining engineering.
I do not expect any other team to contribute, except as beta-testers.
But you are
very welcome to contribute if you have the time, the great thing with
of the jdk repo is that it can be parallellized among any number of developers.
