I asked mark if he could make sure the announcements were made in such a way 
that newbees could get started right away.  The obvious problem that 
classpath is useless without a VM has promted him to include the most easy 
to use and or well known ones to include in the announcement.
A move I applaud.

I would think that your reading of something political behind his leaving 
out SableVM is a little over the top.  From the looks of it I would think 
we would be doing the Classpath users a disfavour for letting them download 
SableVM since the competition makes it easier to cooperate with Classpath. 
Doesn't that sound like a much more logical conclusion?
After all; its not like _all_ VMs except yours were mentioned.

Please respect that its CLASSPATHs release notes and the sole purpose of 
those release notes is to advertise the library.  Not as advertisement fo 
Kaffe or JamVm or even to SableVM.

ps. perhaps the wording in the release could be changed to reflect the 
reason of listing VMs here and to explain that the list is not meant to be
