Mmm, so back in the day we had the Jini Technical Oversight Committee -
couple of houses, one commercial, one non (I've got a feeling there was a
third house, general). I don't recall it formally anointing standards and
such but it could have done. It's a variation on the JCP ultimately which I
know is broken by virtue of abuse of an all powerful owning interest. No
need for it to be broken in our case if we allow the entire community to
decide who's on-board.

I could see a TOC like thing working reasonably well - expert developers and
expert users, working to develop specs which can then be turned into an
implementation (or indeed prototyped along the way). There is of course only
one implementation right now...

That ultimately may be what we get down to - do we entertain the idea there
may be another implementation in the future? I suspect probably not a whole
Kit but maybe individual services. If there are individual service
implementers (oh, like me, say) then specs and some kind of TOC to look
after them and protect the interests of "core" developers, independent
service implementers and users, might be a way to go.

There might well be some work to do on cleaning up specs and such to account
for com.sun.* or at least the current River implementation....

Two cents,

Dan.
