It's not summarized, but there are daily runs of rakudo-jvm and
rakudo-star-on-jvm so you can see the status of the spec tests and
modules that ship with rakudo-star:
- summary of spec test runs for all perl6 implementations
- the rakudo.jvm daily spec tests runs[*]
https://github.com/coke/rakudo-star-daily/tree/master/log - look for
"*jvm*" - all the various log files for building rakudo-star with jvm.

Not in particular, no; If you want up to date chat about what's going,
see #perl6 on irc.freenode.net

[*] Yes, a huge number of the tests are currently failing, we're aware of it.
