JSR 291 Status

There is some confusion about the effects on JSR 291 of jcp.org being in a mess. In particular the Final Approval Ballot won't be happening for at least a week or two.

The Proposed Final Draft spec. has been posted, but is inaccessible as far as I can tell. Fortunately, this is unlikely to matter. It's a pretty mature spec. which has had a few careful modifications due to JSR 291. The spec. is already undergoing a 45 day review by OSGi members. Also JSR 291 received no comments during the Public Review draft of the specification and only non-technical comments during the PR ballot.

So what's happening with the Final Approval Ballot? I submitted the FAB materials, but the email bounced after a couple of days so I just resent it. The spec. license needs a review by Sun lawyers because we used an IBM license rather than a standard Sun license, which will cause an additional unknown delay. After that, the FAB will begin. Hopefully jcp.org will be stable in time...

A sense of humour failure unfortunately; I've edited the original post to make it clear it's a jibe. Unfortunately some people take things too seriously in life :-)

Just add a health warning to your posts for those with impaired sense of humour, irony deficiency, etc.
