JSR 166 (Concurrency utilities) was approved to proceed by the JCP a

Bowbeer, and myself. While we plan to kee this "inner" group small so
as to productively create specs and code, there is now an associated
"outer" mailing list, for general discussion, at:

There's also an associated web page:

of aims and scope:
