Oh, I agree with this and think it's a good thing. It would be great
to have an OpenJDK project. It's just when I saw Neal's mail I
immediately thought two things:
1. Aaah I didn't know about this requirement (I still think that line
says 'work within the rules' not that you must create a project...)
2. How do the rest of us do this?
This has cleared that up and I look forward to seeing lots of new projects!
