I'd also noticed that they had started accepting Java-based projects.
I think we should ask them to scan Harmony code.

Perhaps we should break it down a little rather than submitting the
entire code base as one project.  I also think we should *not* submit
code - such as modules/concurrent - where we don't have the ability to
fix the upstream versions ourselves.

I'd be happy to contact them regarding scanning the classlib code if
people think it would be a good idea.
