Same goes here!!  here is the story.. i got two books (Programming the
Java Virtual Machine and Inside the Java Virtual Machine).. i started
reading about VM internals... and i thought i'd download kaffe or
jikes RVM source code to look at their implementation and to play a
little after reading some chapters from one of these books... will i
be able to contribute to harmony vm if i do such?

(as for the classlibrary i never looked at the implementation but i
step in it  when debugging some web applications. and i'm still a
student so no employers or whatever)
