> Project Proposal: Build Infrastructure Changes
> In accordance with the OpenJDK guidelines for projects [1], I hereby 
> propose the OpenJDK Project "Build Infrastructure Changes".
> This Project will be used for developing major changes to the JDK build process.
> A list of some of the goals include:
>   * Drastically improving the turnaround on full builds
>   * Provide a reliable way for incremental builds to work
>   * Simplify the makefiles drastically avoiding unnecessary nested makes
>   * Allow for parallel building with make -j
>   * Allow for 32bit builds to happen on 64bit systems
>   * Allow for use of more portable build tools (compilers etc.) where possible
> This work will be done in a separate set of repositories.
> I propose this project be sponsored by the Build Group [2] and that I 
> be the initial moderator of the project.
