Thanks, how are they called and are they already populated?

I believe Lillian is holding up the IcedTea 1.5 release for this since
that is (since 1.4) already based on hs14 and it would be good to make
sure that instead of a jdk7/hotspot snapshot it would use the proper
public hs14 repo. There are also people with pending patches against it
that they would like to move upstream.

There was a vote started to create a separate express project, but then
aborted because of procedural issues (wrong mailinglist). It is unclear
whether or not the project creation is stuck now.
