I've just now gotten my SVN stuff ironed out and will
be committing a lot of things soon.  You will be able to
see that all go by on the harmony-commits@ mailing
list, if you are so inclined.  This will be the 0.0.1 release.

One of the things it will have is a .tar.gz that contains
_only_ source and one with source and docs.  (This is in
lieu of storing any pre-formatted docs in the source area
of the repository.)  One of the things I have worked on
that you probably saw in my earlier post to harmony-dev@
is that I have firmed up the documentation in general.
This entails source changes that are converted to HTML
and other formats using 'doxygen' as the documentation
compiler.  It is this pre-formatted documentation that
you will want to look at that will contain a complete list
of @bug and @todo items.

One of the things I will need to do after 0.0.1 is done is
to gather the larger categories @todo items together into
groups of related items, such as the need for threading
verification and internal JAR file support.  I'll keep you
and everyone posted on this.

I think it would be great to have your support on finishing
parts of the incomplete @todo items.  You have also expressed
an interest in the threading area.  This will come soon.

Would you be able to help with porting to any particular
platform?  I developed this on Solaris 9, and Gier M. has
done an initial port to CygWin and is doing some work on
porting it to OS-X.  Could you help with porting to another
Unix platform?  Or perhaps native MS Windows?  We need
all of these things.

Thanks again,

Dan Lydick

Hi Dan,

I'm reading the bootjvm sources and noted that many places there are
stubs/todo marks. I've followed the svn repository and I seens to be
diferent from the JIRA tarball.

Is the svn repository updated with your recent work? I would like to
help implementing some of the missing funtionality as some of it seens
to be pretty straitforward to do.
