I agree on that.

No, our (java.rmi) code does not work with it; the oswego code
does not support generics and it is not compliant with the spec for
j.u.c.; what I said is that we may adapt our code to work with
oswego but that will move us away from Harmony's goal.

What about the j.u.c backport to 1.4 
it may be a good starting point, on their page they say:

"The code can be used for any purpose, modified, and redistributed
without acknowledgment. No warranty is provided, either express or
Note: versions prior to 2.1 had dependencies on proprietary code.
As of 2.1, any such dependencies have been removed."

what do you think?

As promised, we've checked EDU.oswego.cs.dl.util.concurrent package (
and while it works beautifully, it seems to not be compliant with the specs
java.util.concurrent (e.g. it is missing some pieces, such as
etc). Therefore, I am hesitant of adapting our harmony-compliant package to
as it may not be acceptable by Harmony once we are done. What do you think?

As stated above, we've checked with JSR166
(http://gee.cs.oswego.edu/dl/concurrency-interest/index.html )
and we are ok with it, since it complies with the spec. However, I am not
we can use this as part of Harmony, can we?
