Yes.  This would be very cool.  The tricky part will be keeping it
working when none of the current developers work on this platform - unless
we can set up a testing process.

The contribution policy is here:

  http://harmony.apache.org/contribution_policy.html

You say "We" so I assume it will probably be a bulk contribution.  Our
preference is for help to come from the lists rather than individuals
so that anyone can help move things forward.  So this list would be fine
but sensitive issues can be discussed on private@harmony.apache.org.

Patches should be attached to JIRA.

Thanks,
 Mark.
