Subject Re: [general][site] Harmony TODO list
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2007 13:40:24 GMT

Hello ~

   I'm new to Harmony but am wondering if a CDC/Foundation, Personal  
Basis JVM and class library has been considered for smaller systems.   
Since the tag line for Harmony is "Open Source Java SE" this may be  
out of scope but I can still ask... :)
