JavaMemoryModel: JMM discussions moving to

OK, we now have a web page for the Java memory model at

All discussion of the JMM should move over to that web site; I'm going
to shut down the JMM mailing list shortly.

We'll start a errata page and perhaps an FAQ page. Jeremy and I may also
put up the current draft of our TOPLAS submission on the JMM. I'm
also starting the
process of revising the JSR-133 and the JLS to strength the theorem
correctly synchronized programs, as discussed recently.

At the moment, the web site is pretty empty; I've set up a discussion
and we could also use the mailing list

We need to decide one important issue as part of the move: will the
of the JMM discussions take place on the
mailing list, or on the discussion forums at My inclination
is that we should use the discussion forums, and probably use the
mailing lists only
for announcements.
