My name is Guillaume Mazoyer and I am the student who will work on
packaging Jigsaw (modular VM for Java 8) for Debian during this summer
as part of the Google Summer of Code.
I would like to join the openjdk packaging team to contribute to the
openjdk package. I have a lot to learn about this package and that's
also why I'm a student for this GSoC.
Did you plan to work directly on OpenJDK8 or will you try to package the
"jigsaw" forest of opendjk7  ?
afaik, the OpenJDK8 development is currently done behind closed doors, so which
other chance do you have besides working with 7?
As of packaging all this on Debian/Ubuntu, we currently have two main JDK
repositories  . You should have a look to some "guidelines" I've written
for new comers to this package (like me
Joining this team will also allow me to get more familiar with the
Debian processes and the openjdk package.
I really would like to see this work being done within the IcedTea project, not
(just) within the packaging. Are there any issues preventing this?
