I've sent my best wishes to Calvin Austin already ;) Regarding 1.5,
there is a generics branch in GNU Classpath. If you are interested in
helping out with generics, you might want to check that out.
In terms of compilers, eclipse java compiler looks like it may become
the first free software compiler to support the 1.5 language, given
IBM's commitment to it. Tom Tromey's gcjx is also actively being hacked
on, as is kjc, afaict, and jikes, but I don't know what their plans are
wrt to supporting 1.5 features.
