Invites?  We were elected.  And, we recently won 'JCP Member of the
Year' again.  If the JCP voting populace is dis-satisfied with our
behavior, they have an opportunity to voice that displeasure by voting
us off the EC when our term expires soon.  Until then, I think we
should act according to our principles - as we have in the past -
within the JCP.

If we took the view you are advocating, then the JCP as you know it,
wouldn't exist.  I do realize that you and others weren't around for
the last round of JCP negotiations in 2002 (briefly summarized at
http://jakarta.apache.org/site/jspa-position.html).  -- justin
