Tags: OpenJDK

It's that time of year again. The time when free java advocates migrate to Belgium to imbibe in talking. I will be there and mjw tells me he's going to make me talk about something.

The thing I'm pondering the most right now is under which model we can collaborate about Quality in the OpenJDK. The immediate issue is the OpenJDK 6 project, and clearly it is not (yet) beta quality and does not (yet) meet JCK6a conformance. The quality is pretty good but there are some known bugs and it would be nice to fix these.

There is: Exchanging bug data up/down-stream .. test execution on OpenJDK, and sharing test results .. test development ..

At FOSDEM I hope to discuss these and other ideas ...
