JSR 291 public review ballot

The Public Review of JSR 291 lasts just a few more days and the Executive Committee ballot starts today.

The JSR review ballot, just under year ago, passed with eleven EC members in favour, four against, and one abstaining, so it will be interesting to see if any positions have shifted.

Red Hat have recently joined the Expert Group because of the interest of JBoss (a division of Red Hat) in using OSGi, so I'm hoping Red Hat are now comfortable with the rationale for the JSR and will vote in favour.

Some EC members were worried that the JSR would be a rubber-stamping exercise, but since the Expert Group have raised a number of requirements which resulted in spec. changes, these fears should have been allayed.
