IBM would like to contribute AIX's CDE (Common Desktop Environment) DTWM 
(Desktop Window Manager) /MWM (Motif Window Manager) support to OpenJDK 

I'd like contribute following 5 files:

M src/java.desktop/share/classes/sun/font/FontUtilities.java
(Add isAIX flag to determine AIX platform for GUI environment)
M src/java.desktop/unix/classes/sun/awt/X11/MotifColorUtilities.java
(Add High Color support on CDE, OpenJDK just supports Medium Color) [1]
M src/java.desktop/unix/classes/sun/awt/X11/XDecoratedPeer.java
(Avoid miss calculation for window position under DTWM/MWM by 
M src/java.desktop/unix/classes/sun/awt/X11/XWM.java
(Detect MWM on AIX platform)
M src/java.desktop/unix/classes/sun/awt/X11/XWindowPeer.java
(Add non-focusable window support on DTWM/MWM for AIX, because DTWM/MWM 
does not have enough features for ICCCM)

I appreciate any feedback please, and how I would go about obtaining a 
sponsor and contributor ?
