In accordance with the OpenJDK guidelines [1], we would like to start 
of a new Project to integrate JSR 310 Date and Time API into OpenJDK.

The goal of the ThreeTen Project will be to integrate the JSR 310 RI 
into OpenJDK.
Currently, JSR 310 is hosted on SourceForge [2] and the source code 
hosted at Github [3].
The ThreeTen Project will only contribute the JSR 310 RI, Specification, 
and tests
to OpenJDK. The new Project depends on parallel OpenJDK Projects such as
Project Lambda and other related internationalization updates.

The JSR 310 public discussion alias [4] will continue to be hosted on 
The development of the specification, RI and tests will continue on 
Github and
be periodically merged into the ThreeTen OpenJDK Project.

The proposed initial Project lead is Roger Riggs, a co-spec lead of JSR 310
with Stephen Colebourne and Michael Nascimento Santos.  Roger has been
working in the Core Libraries Group to facilitate the integration  of 
JSR 310 RI
into OpenJDK.
The initial committers are proposed to be: Stephen Colebourne, Sherman Shen,
Roger Riggs and  James Gough, and Richard Warburton.

Please discuss and let us know what you think in the next week.

Thank you for your consideration,
