as David Herron already suggested it would be interesting to have a "Performance Group" that deals with Java performance issues, including start up times, application run time performance, memory management of objects while running etc that is all the critical stuff of Java apps. This would help understand why, i.g. some applications crash if they run longer than a day - there was a bug in the bug database on this. 

Tom was speaking about publishing some figures and i think it would be interesting for developers - in particular those working on ports of OpenJDK - to see how the JRE or VM and applications behave on different plattforms. 

Since there is currently no mailing-list for discussions on this just consider this as an "experimantal" outline of Davids idea of a Performance group.

May be David can outline his initial idea a bit more.
