Idea from today's JCP EC call

On today's EC call, we had an update from Rory about outreach to
open-source projects to help ensure testing on JDK 9.

One question that came up is - can we get some better sense as to
which projects are actually creating modules and going "Java 9
native", as opposed to producing Java 9-compatible jars and running
under legacy classloading?

Two places that we thought we could start with are:

* BigQuery on Github - to detect use of Java 9 keywords or

* Module files appearing in public artifact repositories

I think it would be really useful to help get an idea of how widely
adopted modules really are.
