Subject JSR-311 : that "REST" stuff that Roy keeps carrying on about...
Date Sat, 17 Feb 2007 11:56:46 GMT

Last night, Sun informed the EC regarding the changes made to title  
and package name.

I voted yes this morning with the comment :

"The ASF thanks the spec lead for making the changes to the title and  
package name as noted in a mail to the EC on 2/16/07 - this was a key  
requirement for us.

We'd also like to encourage the spec lead to consider creating the  
software portion of the TCK as open source software, allowing  
community participation in designing as well as implementing the  
tests.  There is successful precedent for this, and it wouldn't  
necessarily put compatibility of independent implementations nor the  
spec leads ability to command support or other revenue at risk if  
this path was chosen.

Finally, we strongly urge the spec lead to "utilize" rather than  
"leverage" an open source development model for this JSR, to  
encourage as much participation from the community as possible - the  
community has a tremendous amount of experience using this  
architectural model, and it behooves the spec lead to take advantage  
of known best practices."
