Thanks to you Mike also for your reply. 

The hard side for a non core developer or individual like me is to find infos about roadmap or planning, for example to know when a given feature will be implemented or backported from trunk to bsd-port, from bsd-port to  mac-port. 

And also the large portions of code injected in HG in a single shot.

They fix up little issues that affect BSD and Darwin at the HotSpot and core-lib level that are different from Linux and Solaris - this allows us to focus on our hot mess of Objective-C code in the JDK.

Once this initial bring-up period is over, we will switch over to a more traditional bug/review model of development, since most of the code from that point on will be new original content.
