The authors of Jikes have set up a discussion database to help them write a proposal to make Jikes into Free Software. They hope to put a proposal together by the end of August, but of course that does not garantee their managers will buy into it... on the other hand their proposal to release Jikes for Linux was accepted. Please contribute to the discussion, but give them really good testimonials as to why that would help you in your development: they already know Linux's advantages, but need more data to make a really strong proposal. In related news, Jikes is now available for libc5, so everyone can try it.
