Apple start to make public contributions to OpenJDK

Mike Swingler of Apple announced yesterday, that Apple has started to contribute to the OpenJDK project:

I'm very happy to let you know that today we made the first public contribution of code to the OpenJDK project for Mac OS X. This initial contribution builds on the hard work of the BSD port, and initially has the same functionality. Today's contribution simply modifies the build process to create universal binary, and produces a .jdk bundle which is recognized by Java Preferences and the JVM detection logic in Mac OS X.

You will find a list of important links in regard of this project in the announcement mail.
