Is there a place where we can place "community" builds for various
platforms. I would like to have a central repository for them. I am
uploading a version of my openjdk7-zerovm-ppc build so that someone can use
it to bootstrap a BSD build. I am using my Google Storage account to do it
though. I know I could put it on Java.net, but I would like some more
central spot on Java.net.
Ultimately, I would like to see "official" OpenJDK builds for various
platforms posted on the main OpenJDK site. I know we have some promoted
builds but it would be nice to have a CI setup.

neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight
that knows not victory nor defeat."
