We are trying to do just that. We are just starting out in the 
incubator, and are looking for feedback.

We will start to use the jdo-dev alias more, starting from now. Until 
we have a real product to download, it's hard to see anyone using the 
jdo-user alias.

Right now, we have several people contributing, mostly from Sun. We are 
looking for others to participate.

Can you be more specific about what you are looking for? Do you want to 
contribute and don't know how or what to do?

If you want to participate in the specification-making process, I'm 
happy to invite you. JDO specification is being developed in the 
http://jcp.org process. To contribute there, just sign the JSPA and ask 
to join the JSR 243 expert group. It's a very open process.
