This point actually raises something else - it would be a bitsilly to have a specs project ("here are all our Java specs!") if itdoesn't have them all ("...except this one, this one, and this one").Well, we can't force anyone, and I just assume that projects will see the utility. There's nothing really interesting about these spec jars, so they would be just a consumer as well (with help maintaining, I suppose).Is it worth asking them to move too, and do we need to make sure theyall agree first, or do we just agree to link out to them?On a website? I guess we could point to them, to try and shame them into bringing the stuff over :)I understand the earlier point that there might not be a lot of codinggoing on here and that might hinder building any community around it.However, its another excuse for a bunch of people doing Java stuff toget together in one place, and maybe meet a wider community of peopleat Apache. That can only be a good thing.The thing is, I don't think we should set any high expectations about community, because unlike Jakarta Commons, where there was/is active development around the projects, the spec jars are pretty static and boring...It would be nice to have a JDO2 impl here as well...Getting off-topic, but does that really need to be here? Is thereanything stopping people from getting involved in jpox, who as Iunderstand it work very closely with the jdo team here and are the RI?Does it need to? only if people want it. JPOX is the RI, and I always feel that a truly competitive impl of a spec isn't going to be the RI. You don't want to do real extension and surrounding innovation in an RI, I figure...
