Thanks for asking the question. We were discussing it withing our team
and need a little more clarification on that.
Can you please throw some light on what do you mean by adding a resource
bundle to OpenJDK? Do you mean to add a new Locale in itself (which
covers set of locale sensitive classes e.g. Currency, Calendar, Collator
etc.) to OpenJDK or just a set of translations for a language? An
example on that would be very helpful.
