It looks like we do not have "[component][module]" requirement in
Harmony guidelines at all. But it would be nice to have :)

This can be applied to ALL the patches and it also would be nice if
ALL the patches will have patch descriptions :)

We still got ~3% of unimplemented API in AWT/Swing area for Java5. Not
very important API but... :)
So we will need to synchronize our AWT/Swing development with Java6 branch.

BTW here is japitool comparison between Java6 and Harmony [1]. We have
89.25% success rate. The main development areas (new packages) are
org.xml, javax.ws, javax.util, javax.script, javax.lang,
javax.activation, javax.annotation.

So there are a lot of places to work on :)

SY, Alexey
