> I hereby propose the creation of the Graal Project with Thomas Wuerthinger 
> as the Lead and hotspot as the sponsoring Group.
> The goal of the Graal project is to design a dynamic compiler in Java that
> produces excellent code quality without compromising compile time and
> memory usage by the JVM. The origin and starting point for this project
> would be the Graal compiler from the Maxine code base. For more detail,
> see the proposal  sent out last week.
> To ensure the broadest possible collaboration between potential contributors
> the project will maintain one or more code repositories derived from the
> OpenJDK HotSpot repository  and a developers' mailing list. The Graal
> code repository and developers' mailing list will be under the GPL license
> (GPL) version 2 with the OpenJDK Assembly Exception.
> Thomas will lead the project. He works for Oracle Labs and is the author of
> the Dynamic Code Evolution VM  and the Ideal Graph Visualizer .
> He also worked on the Crankshaft/V8 optimizing compiler  and implemented
> an algorithm for array bounds check elimination  for the HotSpot
> Client compiler.
> Based on previous significant contributions to the project's initial
> source base, the initial committers will be:
> Gilles Duboscq
> Doug Simon
> Lukas Stadler
> Christian Wimmer
> Andreas Woess
> Thomas Wuerthinger
> The initial authors will be:
> Rickard Backman
> Laurent Daynes
> Matthias Grimmer
> Christian Haeubl
> Marcus Lagergren
> Manuel Rigger
> Votes are due by Friday February 17th, 2012 at 17:00h UTC.
