It has been discussed that jini.org will serve as a "information portal", with 
links to docs, specs, implementations, the starter kit, and so forth.
The Apache project will first be the center of coding of the starter kit, and 
other useful generic tools.

It has not yet been decided what exactly should happen to the specifications 
and related process (JDP). Many people like the JDP, but also recognizes the 
overhead needed to keep it running. One alternative that has been discussed 
is to let the Jini TLP manage the JDP (with a couple of amendments) as well.

My personal stance is that it is an issue that is not urgent, and can be 
discussed through incubation.

Previously, both Alex Karasulu and Gianugo Rabellino have expressed 
willingness to mentor this. I know Alex is on vacation, and have very limited 
online access at the moment...
