We're planing to set up a IcedTea repository that has all necessary
patches to run with CACAO as VM. These patches include one or two
patches for the OpenJDK build system and a patch we need for the binary
wrappers from OpenJDK because of a problem with Boehm-GC.
We should now decide what is better to use, a named branch or a seperate
clone. I'm, personally, in favor for a named branch, as merging with
the default branch is very easy and we have a full history of all
changes ever done in one single repository.
