How about a prebuild Oracle VM appliance for openjdk development (at least for the linux-setup). I will get it working without such a appliance but i think it can be a solution to lower the "entry-hurdle" in openjdk contribution.

That's a good idea, Sebastian.

As we move to using Virtual Machines more here inside Oracle, I'll check 
to see if it would be possible to make our Linux build and test images 
available for outside use.  VirtualBox, VMware, and OVM (xen)-based 
images are most likely what could be provided. Note that we'll not be 
able to make Solaris or Windows available, as neither of them have free 
distribution licenses.

Note that I can't promise anything, other than that I'll look at making 
our VM images available.
