Looks like a problem.

I sent a note to legal-discuss about (iii).

I'll work on setting up a new release candidate.

While searching the JSR-317 draft for direction regarding early access naming, I found that the notice (page 2) includes the clauses below, notably item iii.  Does clause iii need to be added to the NOTICE in the EA jar?  Also, should the Geronimo EA NOTICE use "JPA 2.0 EARLY ACCESS" instead of simply "JPA 2.0" in order to meet clause ii?  

<jsr-317 draft>
2.Distribute implementations of the Specification to third parties for their testing and evaluation use, provided that any such implementation:
(i) does not modify, subset, superset or otherwise extend the Licensor Name Space, or include any public or protected packages, classes, Java interfaces, fields or methods within the Licensor Name Space other than those required/authorized by the Specification or Specifications being implemented;
(ii)is clearly and prominently marked with the word "UNTESTED" or "EARLY ACCESS" or "INCOMPATIBLE"
or "UNSTABLE" or "BETA" in any list of available builds and in proximity to every link initiating its download, where the list or link is under Licensee's control; and
(iii)includes the following notice:
"This is an implementation of an early-draft specification developed under the Java Community Process (JCP) and is made available for testing and evaluation purposes only. The code is not compatible with any specification of the JCP."

I've been working with the OpenJPA project to develop the jpa 2.0 spec jar in our spec repository.  They are ready for their first early access milestone release.

I've staged the release here:


The svn location is here:

I haven't staged the site.  I don't think its necessary for a early access release, but will reconsider on request.

I ran rat on the project, and the autochecking thinks the legal files are ok.

Vote open for 72 hours.
