One of the areas the JUGs would like to help with is to rally the prominent
OSS projects to test OpenJDK 8 early (try to avoid Lucene type issues). We
were originally thinking about a simple wiki table ticking off projects vs
milestones. Is this something that would be useful? If so at what Milestone
would you like us to really start pushing the message / running tests on?
