Subject Re: Will fscontext and providerutil jars be available for automatic download?

I don't maintain JNDI.  You need to find the owner of JNDI in Sun.
Janet will probably know.

Since JNDI is part of Java SE, anything that would be done in this space
is probably dependent on the Java SE open source plans.
