The status is public info, and people problems on an expert group we  
aren't leading is something the spec lead should take care of, and  
only escalate to the ASF if the spec lead isn't handling it in a  
professional way.

Publishable if a board report.

thx, and it's wrong.  I meant 168.  162 was one that was abandoned  
when it became a tool measuring contest between big companies and  
several combined, IIRC.  Fixed.

I had the latter on my to-do list (the other thing is to list  
projects that have formally tested).  Former, only the ASF licenses  
TCKs, but every project that implements a JSR should be testing as  
per the terms of the spec license.

I was going to use the above to start hunting down projects and  
making them test....

Yes, but we only have one, Pluto. Code from Tomcat is used in the RI,  
but it isn't the RI.  Same w/ Jackrabbit AFAIK.
