As you may be aware, the OSGi alliance has kicked off a project to
standardize eRCP. Since eRCP is already an existing project, the effort is
mostly around making an "official" spec of the eRCP components that are not
already part of standards, and producing an official test suite that ensures
compliance to the spec. The goal is to release the completed spec and TCK in
alignment with release of eRCP 1.3 this coming July.

This should not be a huge effort as most of the spec can already be derived
from existing JavaDoc and the bulk of the API tests are already in Eclipse.
The work is to fill in some missing specification text and test cases. The
standardization group may also influence what new function will be put into
eRCP 1.3.

Having eRCP be an official standard may ease its adoption with mobile
service providers who are looking to upgrade from the JME MIDP standard, but
are leary of going with a non standardized open source project. Providing
the missing test cases will also directly help the Eclipse community by
providing better test coverage for core components. As always, we are
looking for a few good people to assist with this work so we can keep it on
schedule. Please let me know if you would like to help or can recommend
places to post this information where interested parties may see it.

Thanks,
Mark
