The direct current mechanism for materially support of ABCL development is
provided by the ongoing [ABCL appreciation][] campaign.

If someone wants a more directly responsible arrangement, I would be more than
willing to engage in a more mutually beneficial direct commercial relationship.

There will certainly be an abcl-1.8.1 in the near term, but if there was
sufficient commercial interest in supporting openjdk8 as a thing, I would be
happy to direct more of my efforts towards longer temporal terms.

In any event, regardless of future possible material donations, I am very happy
that you find commercial utility with the current ABCL on openjdk8.
