    AFAIK in case of JPA there has been no standalone spec-provided API for
    quite long time with reasoning behind that that "the API is
    implementation specific and should be provided by vendors/spec
    implementations" - in case of EclipseLink the repo with API is one of
    the repositories managed by eclipselink project.


Well, that's not entirely correct. There is a JPA API (https://github.com/javaee/jpa-spec), but it has not been transferred to Eclipse yet. I guess that is why it is missing from the list. As soon as the project has been created, it will appear there.

well, that is a _spec project_ (=specification related) whose only purpose in the past was to provide issue tracker and mailing list for EG. What I was referring to is http://git.eclipse.org/c/eclipselink/javax.persistence.git/ which is the repository containing JPA API sources relevant for EclipseLink project.

    I believe that it has been clearly communicated by others that specs and
    TCK's as such are being/will be handled separately; these have never
    been part of EclipseLink, nor managed by it.
