The OS/2 port of Java will be based on the OpenJDK codebase.

There are actually two OpenJDK branches at the present time: OpenJDK 6 and OpenJDK 7. The latter is still under development at least until September 2010 and the former is actually a backward branch of it with the features not meeting the Java SE 6 specification removed (see the OpenJDK 6 genealogy for details).

Taking into account that OpenJDK 7 is a work in progress with no strictly fixed GA release date and that all existing Java software targets the Java 6 platform at most, it doesn't make sense to take OpenJDK 7 as a base for the OS/2 port. We will start off with OpenJDK 6 and then update to OpenJDK 7 when it's ready; keeping in mind their common root, this should not be too difficult.

The draft roadmap is there. It will be further clarified while doing #2 and #3 (there will most likely be more specific milestones at the end).

The repository structure will be created later when we decide what sources to commit.
