I am not a OpenJDK member and as such, cannot propose the creation of a new
group. But may be someone among the OpenJDK members would be interested in
proposing such group.
The essential motivation is to support windows as a major platform in all
directions sustained by the OpenJDK ecosystem.
This group is more a recipe for people interested in improving the know-how of
building, testing, running, debugging, documenting the releases of OpenJDk with
a focus on the Windows build system and the Windows jtreg system at the same
level of other platforms. Special effort should concentrate in the update of the
current specific building hotspot MSVC component jvm.vxproj so that it would be
in sync with the "new" configuration system started in jdk8.
I am not sure about the differentiation between group and project, but the group
concept seem to me more appropriate since windows is already part of the hotspot
as an os subpart
