Sorry, s/we exactly/we did exactly/.  Here's an excerpt of the

  "Since Sun has not  responded to the ASF's open Letter
  on this matter, the ASF is  currently in the process of formulating a new
  policy towards the JCP  (see jcp-open@apache.org) and all future JSRs will be
  evaluated in  light of that policy. Since the policy has not yet been
  finalized,  the ASF reluctantly abstains from voting at this time."

IOW, without a new policy, we don't know how to exercise
our vote other than "abstain".  That's what I meang by 
"lacking direction".
