I think we need a top-level README file with the crucial export notice.
This README can then be included in all the jars.  We don't seem to have
a top-level README anywhere but perhaps something like the appended text
would do for now?

I think that would be acceptable for M10 but we can always refine the
top-level README later and consider whether more specific README files
might be appropriate for individual jars.

I'd appreciate comments and/or permission to commit the README and
necessary jar changes (which I'm preparing a patch for)?



Apache Harmony - Open Source Java SE

Apache Harmony is the Java SE project of the Apache Software Foundation.

The aim of the project is to produce a large and healthy community of
those interested in runtime platforms tasked with creation of:

 * A compatible, independent implementation of the Java SE 5 JDK under
   the Apache License v2

 * A community-developed modular runtime (VM and class library)

For more information about using Apache Harmony see:
