I lack the requisite experience to take the lead on this.  However, I think 
we couldn't really make that determination until someone has done some 
high-level specifications and determined what exactly needs to be done.  
That requires us to identify preliminary issues regarding the build 
environment.  Realistically, what is our timeframe here?  If we have 36 
months, we might be able to achieve a lot.  If somebody is looking for 
something in the next 12 months, the project might have to be scaled back.

Exactly what IS Harmony?  If the goal is an Apache-licensed J2SE 5.0 
implementation, then we have two parts (1) the VM and (2) the class library. 
  Our requirements tool is the TCK -- but somebody still needs to reduce 
that to a series of requirements and specifications so we can target what 
needs to be done and estimate how long it will take to do.
