Hi Elisa,


For the record, together with the GNU Classpath and IcedTea communities
we decided to do this experiment, and allocated one resource to help
students to be introduced to OpenJDK development. The project is still
part of the GNU Classpath umbrella and will be followed by GNU Classpath
people. If the experiment will succeed, we may try to turn next year
into a proper organisation fully dedicated to OpenJDK.

I will be mentoring Elisa, and the code will be probably hosted on the
icedtea server once ready for use (although for the time being we will
develop the code on an external repository until everything is set

Once again, welcome Elisa!
