Subject Re: Starting a java specs project

One idea was to collate them as a part of Jakarta.

My aim for Jakarta is to either promote subprojects to TLP or flatten them 
into Jakarta Commons, leading to a non-umbrella Jakarta (I know, you 
didn't think you'd see it in your lifetime). This new Jakarta would 
have the potential to serve two roles:

1) Place for Java@Apache to share conversation [general@jakarta]
2) Place for Java@Apache to share code [Jakarta Commons]

Storing the spec source there would be good for everyone I think; it would 
help bring people to Jakarta to share code and conversation, and the 
Commons community would make good stewards for the code if the various 
owners departed.

Some other pluses are that it would help be a part of an attempt to 
rejuvenate Jakarta in 2006 (as a kind of federation) and that non-JCP 
specs could be stored there too.

Not trying to intrude on the JCP stuff though, so I can see if it's 
preferred to keep things under a strictly JCP-oriented environment.
