Thank you very much for your reply and suggestion. I understand that
it is too late for a new port to be into the main line of jdk8u and

I think your suggestion is very reasonable, helpful and acceptable. We
are willing to adopt your suggestion. However, I have one question
about your suggestion. Could you explain more about bringing our port
into the MIPS Porting Project? I'm not quite sure what it specifically
means. Is that we can put our code into OpenJDK repository (not the
main line) like aarh64 jdk8u[1] and the further development should
happened according to community requirements, such as [2][3]?
