... or, well, more to the truth, we're *not* hiring. At least not in the
sense that we'll pay you money. But we do want beta testers anyway! :-)
Your reward will be a new build system that will work on the systems and
configurations you care about, right out of the box, and a fuzzy warm

A document that describes how to try out the new build system, and that
answers many questions that you might have, is here:


The TL;DR:


   Clone the project forest.

   hg clone http://hg.openjdk.java.net/build-infra/jdk9 build-infra-jdk9
   cd build-infra-jdk9 && bash get_source.sh [additional closed url]


   The build infra project is constantly on the move. The safest way to get
   to a working state is by using a tag, e.g. build-infra-beta-01.

   bash common/bin/hgforest.sh update -r build-infra-beta-01


   Build it. This works just as the with old build.

   bash configure && make

If you have questions or want to report bugs or enhancement requests,
please direct them to the build-infra project list
build-infra-dev at openjdk.java.net. Note that this is different from the
Build Group mailing list build-dev at openjdk.java.net.

Before asking questions, please check
http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~ihse/docs/new-hotspot-build.html to see if they
have been answered there first.
