Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "JenaProposal" by AndySeaborne
Date Wed, 03 Nov 2010 23:35:04 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "JenaProposal" page has been changed by AndySeaborne.


  The Jena team has always been self-determining; there has not been a  project manager in
charge of the effort.  Instead, it has grown through  individuals contributing to the codebase
as part of their research  activities.  The team has organised itself to create the framework
for  builds, releases and public support, and people who had worked on Jena  in HP, and moved
to other companies and institutions, have continued to  contribute.
  === Core developers ===
- See
+ Jena originated within a research activity in HPLabs, starting around 2000.
+ Contributors to jena have been active in W3C working groups including
+ chairing the "RDF Core" working group and acting as document editors on
+ several other working groups.  W3C processes are public; jena contributors
+ have been involved in public debate and decision making.  People have since
+ moved on from HP to several semantic web forced companies and to university
+ positions.
  === Alignment ===
  Jena is already in use in many commercial systems as well as widely used  in academic research
and teaching.  We want to continue making this easy  and at the same time encourage contribution
in a well-known environment.
