This comment surprised me enough to read this proposal again, and I
have to agree with Jim. On one hand, the proposal starts out to speak
of "current and future EEG specifications", but then becomes very blur
of what that really means. Components, not solutions, not a server,
not a framework, but "components" could as Jim points out mean
everything (or at least anything one can stick in a Bundle in OSGi
lingo).

Does it warrants a -1? Yes, I think it does. But considering how many
PMC members are on the roster, I doubt it will stop anything.

-1 from me, until I see a limitation in scope that is "describable"...
I like the intent, but not the formulation. Look at your current
plans, distill the essence and put that in the proposal.


Cheers
