Subject Re: JAXB API target
Date Wed, 07 Jun 2006 17:45:30 GMT
Am kinda thinking it needs a very different kind of pmc/committer
model so a new top level project might be simplest.

e.g. any comitter at apache should be pretty much welcome to come in
and add a spec or fix any errors in the specs or build system or
documentation - as they are generally static and don't change (until a
new spec comes along or a spec changes).

So its kindof a cross-project project with a low barrier to entry for
any apache committer (since no real development happens other than
typing in the specs from the javadoc).
