Hi everyone

With the Java FreeBSD mailing list pretty quiet, I thought I might ask 
here whether anyone was working on porting the latest Java versions over 
to FreeBSD. There is of coursethe, but 
there is little activity immediately obvious on porting there [1].

While Java 8 will be quite satisfactory for a while, the longer Java 
advances without BSD patches the harder it will be to bring across all 
the good work done for Java 8 on FreeBSD.

Are there plans for the Foundation to sponsor some work in this area? 
I'm guessing its pretty substantial.
