Hi Rob and everybody else on this list,

just as a broad link (I don't want to offend anybody, just create some
awareness :)

We have a new platform called 'AIX' in the OpenJDK. For the matter of JTreg
test it behaves mostly like every other Unix platform. I would really
appreciate it very much if future test additions/changes which contain the

 case "$OS" in
   SunOS | Linux | Darwin )

pattern could also add 'AIX' to this list.

For this change that would have been especially simple because it also
changed several files which already used the new pattern (e.g.

 case "$OS" in
   SunOS | Linux | Darwin | AIX )

Should there arise any PPC64/AIX related questions in the future please
simply  CC  "ppc-aix-port-dev at openjdk.java.net" - we will be happy to

Thank you and best regards,
