The current mips-port project is more or less abandoned. There is just
Dalibor as lead, and no other registrered contributors.  No serious
activitity has happend on the mailing lists for years, and there is not
even a hg repository associated with the project.
It does seem like a good idea to revive it for bringing in your mips
port into a more current version of OpenJDK.
I would suggest that, if Dalibor is happy with it, he should pass on the
role as mips-port lead to you, since you are actively pursuing the mips
port at this point.
In any case, the first thing to to is for the mips-port lead to request
a new repository for the up to date port. The project lead needs to send
a mail to ops at openjdk.java.net and specify the name of the repository.
My suggestion would be "mips-port/jdk" if the intention is to track the
current jdk/jdk master, or "mips-port/jdk11" (or jdk8, or ...) if the
intention is to track a specific, released, version.
Once a repo is in place, I can give further guidance in how to proceed.
