If you write a new algorithm on DRLVM you can still compare it to the
existing J9 algorithm :-) or the DRLVM algorithms.

We are aiming to improve the DRLVM in this project, as mentioned
elsewhere, J9 is not open source so no opportunity for you to contribute
directly there.

Did you look at the website already?  There are a number of documents
that will be of interest to you, including a How-To for new GC
algorithms [1]

I suggest you check your ability to contribute to the project, then
describe your ideas and work with Xiao-Feng and everyone on this list to
implement it.  I'm sure you'll get some useful feedback.
