Subject Re: Apache Software Foundation as "Supporter" of a JSR to define the Portlet 2.0 Bridge for JavaServer Faces 1.2?
Date Fri, 16 Jan 2009 02:37:08 GMT
I would encourage Apache to support this JSR proposal as well.

I'm not an Apache Member, but I am a PMC for the MyFaces project and the 
project lead for the MyFaces Portlet Bridge.  With JSR-301 Oracle has 
proven quite effectively that they can work with the open process and 
with Apache in general.  They even worked with the JCP to modify the 
license on the JSR-301proposed final draft to remove the "terms of use" 
clause at the request of Apache.

Also, the MyFaces Portlet Bridge project has already started work on the 
implementation of the Portlet 2.0 bridge and it would be nice for Apache 
to show their support for the bridge projects going forward.  :)

Just my 2 cents.
