Hi Bob,

This is great news!

Within the aarch32 port we have a jdk8u tree and a jdk9 tree. Azul
Systems have been working on a jdk8u C1 port which they intend to

Currently we have been tracking the jdk8u changes in jdk9 and the
eventual intent was to forward port C1 to the jdk9 tree as well.

I am keen that we continue to work with Azul who have been contributing
to the project since inception.

Looking forward to how we could incorporate the Oracle port into the
aarch32 project we can easily create a separate repo for the the Oracle

Longer term we need to have a single port for aarch32 and aarch64,
especially when this is merged upstream.

So I think there will need to be a lot of discussion amongst the
interested parties as to how we handle this.

Again, great news, and something I have been looking forward to for
some time.

All the best,
