Subject Fwd: [jira] Created: (HARMONY-6) Contribution of JVM Source Code
Date Sat, 01 Oct 2005 02:57:53 GMT
Something is fubar w/ JIRA and this didn't seem to make it to the  
list.  Daniel is a man I've been badgering, cajoling, pleading,  
begging, harrassing, bothering, hounding, nagging, wheedling and  
coaxing for a while with this, and I'm really happy he got it far  
enough so that he's comfortable sharing it with us.

I'm excited to work further with Dan, and how we can compare and  
contrast this with Archie's code too.
