This is my plan. :-)

I'm improving. I've downloaded the tl clone, but I'm disappointed, 
because it has 200 MByte, not much less than the complete jdk7. I also 
tried nio2 clone, which isn't better, and not updated since 1 year. (Is 
there anybody responsible for it's update?)
I would be happy if there would be some smaller "trees" in the mercurial 
forest for us externals.
