Subject [DISCUSS] JPA 2.0 expert group representation
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2007 01:05:41 GMT
Does the OpenJPA community want Apache to have representation on the  
JPA 2.0 EG?

Yes, Apache voted no on JSR 317 on the principle that the proposed  
Specification Lead is in violation of the JSPA by not offering a TCK  
license without FOU restrictions for Java EE 5. But the OpenJPA  
community can decide to try to influence the specification that  
directly affects us.

Individuals from companies on a JCP Expert Group have access to email  
discussions that are distributed internally via a "lurker" alias.  
Feedback is sent through an individual representative from that  
company to the Expert Group.

There would be an advantage for OpenJPA community members who are not  
privy to an internal lurker alias, to be able to participate in the  

The Specification Lead for JSR 317 would set the participation rules,  
which under JCP can include Non Disclosure Agreements. Any OpenJPA  
community member who wanted to participate might be bound by an  
agreement not to disclose information from the Expert Group discussion.

In order to implement this, we might need a closed Apache-JPA mail  
alias for discussion and an Expert Group representative to forward  
comments from the closed alias to the expert group.

Would any OpenJPA community members be interested in participating in  
the JSR-317 Expert Group under these conditions?

Please send comments to both dev and users aliases.
