Typo3 made some efforts of implementing first a PHP to JCR bridge
(using Jackrabbit as backend) and the implementing JCR in PHP
natively. See this blog post with some links: [1]. But I don't know
whether they aim JSR-170 or 283 at the moment.

It looks like the Typo3 effort has been spun off into a separate project, Flow3, covering a JSR-283 CR and allied framework. They've picked up on the dormant Jackrabbit port to PHP and appear to be actively working on it.

I cannot speak for the whole community, but I'd say the current focus
lies on getting JSR-283 done in Jackrabbit. Implementing the full spec
is quite a big task, so I'd recommend to start with selected areas
only (eg. no observation, search, nodetype support etc.) to get you

Fair enough. Thanks for the advice!

Best regards,
