Hi Martijn,

Great to hear that the LJC is continuing this activity. We are as well; I've 
updated the warnings page [1] to have the latest statistics including the work 
that my colleague Kurchi Hazra has done.

I think the only area that has pending warnings changes are the java.text ones 
that Deepak Bhole produced some months ago that were reviewed by John Rose. I 
still have to revisit and review these changes. Other than that, any area 
should be fair game.

I can lurk around on IRC during the event to help answer questions that might 
arise, and I can help review changes and push if they're in or near my area 
(core libraries). There are still a lot of warnings though in AWT 
(thousands...) so any changes there would be better coordinated with the AWT folks.

Looking forward to the event!
