No hold up really.  For some time we've been waiting for the new OpenJDK 
bylaws to come into effect.  That happened this week.  Now we're just 
following the process for creating a new project 

This thread puts us at Optional Step 0 of the "Proposing a New Project" 
section.  Once this particular discussion winds up we will make our 
formal proposal to the announce at alias per Step 1.  That 
starts a two week call for votes.  Provided the voters are in favor we 
get started creating repos and filling them with code.  So we're talking 
weeks not days.

What´s the ETA for the above?. What´s holding up the "approval"?. I mean,
is this a matter of days? weeks? hours?.
