Subject Re: request to create private list jsr277-discuss@apache.org

Our main goal in participating in the JCP is to open it up, inch by  
inch.   Things have been relatively quiet, and I think there's an  
opportunity here.

Before we create another locked-down communication forum, lets use  
this as a chance to unhook the NDA requirement for these  
discussions.   (There's a bunch of other places I want to unhook the  
NDA, but this is a good place to start...)

Brett, I'd like you to approach Stanley and explain the situation of  
having more interest in the ASF for the JSR.  (He should be aware  
from the time we wanted more than one rep.)  Tell him that we'd like  
to have an interest list for committers, but don't want to require an  
NDA for it, as we want to have open discussion internally [whatever  
that means in an open community] about what's happening on the EG in  
support of you representing us, and further, we want to start  
implementing whatever the EG is coming up with.

I'm happy to help if you need it, but as you know Stanley better than  
I do at this point you should take a wack at this if you are willing...
