Once it's in an easily-obtained and well-advertised download location  
does it matter where the jdo-spec jar is built? There is a good  
reason to build the jdo-spec jar as part of the project (it's a  
dependency of the other sub-projects in Apache JDO).

The JPOX folks who provide the JDO 2 RI are also committers on the  
Apache JDO project. Not the reverse, but there's no stopping Apache  
JDO folks from joining the JPOX project.
