Indeed, these and many other parts of NetBeans need to be discussed,
analyzed, and allocated to the individual committers working on Apache
NetBeans (incubating).

The first next step, at this point, now that we have worked through the
licensing issues around nb-javac and Graal, we need to work on the language
for the code donation so that, after the code donation is complete, i.e.,
the CCLA/SGA is signed, we can move (minus nb-javac)
to Apache Git. I will start a new thread about this.
