We try to keep the hassle to a minimum. As long as all source code is
distributed under a Free Software license and it is somewhat related to
libre java implementations. IcedTea is intended to for hackers to just
get work done.

If you make what you have available and we can import it in a new hg
tree or forest under which everybody
can then clone from. These repositories have offline backups made every

hg commit/push accounts work through ssh so you would need to provide an
ssh public key. Anybody with ssh push access can create personal
repositories (which should again only contain Free Software) under for "scratch" or test
repositories. These repositories aren't backed up though.

Everybody can use the bug database at (we would add a new component for
mips) just by registering with some email address.

A wiki is available under which
currently doesn't have a public account registration because of spammers
abusing it (sorry about that). But just ask and anybody normally
communicating on the mailinglists can get an account using their normal
email address to edit any pages.
