Day 2 of my "Contributing to Mustang" experiment begins.
I feel like I may have started the experiment unfairly by locking some of you out of the experience. My steps so far to contributing to Mustang worked for me, but they may not work for you. Why? Because you may not be a java.net registered member.
I decided to logout of java.net and follow my own instructions. There were immediate road blocks when I tried to apply for the jdk.researcher status. You have to have java.net membership apparently...silly me, I forgot to tell you that step. Funny thing...I never even suspected that one might have to be a registered java.net member. Hmm...are there other websites that will provide access to Mustang, or does java.net have the exclusive gatekeeper status? If I have an account over at javalobby or other pro Java site, can I participate. Hmmm..I dunno. I'll check it out though.
