With the rise of GitHub and the recent move of the Eclipse foundation to a social coding model, more and more people are wondering why participation in OpenJDK isn’t keeping up with the times. A small group of people from the London Java Community (LJC) and Adopt OpenJDK are trying to solve this problem by building Betterrev, a platform that will reduce barriers to entry for participation in OpenJDK and also improve visibility of contributions.

This presentation will highlight our motivations for the Betterrev project, the primary goals (and proposed roadmap), and our current progress. Our intent is that all attendees will be excited by the potential benefits that the social-coding philosophy could bring to the OpenJDK, and will be encouraged to generously volunteer their time and skills to help push the development of Betterrev forward, with the ultimate goal of creating a highly social ecosystem around contributions to a free Java.
