Thanks.  I don't know if we're ready for a forest just yet, but a 
mailing list/page probably make sense.

It's a nice idea, but UltraViolet is actually the Reservoir trademark 
for its Java technology, so I'm not sure it's appropriate.  I was just 
thinking to call it the OpenJDK MIPS Port Project (perhaps bland, but 
descriptive).  I'm sure we could think of something more unique if that 
seems useful though.
