Re: [ee4j-community] Status of JPA migration

I kindly ask the PMC to create a pure JPA API project under the hood of
EE4J, separated from EclipseLink's implementation, and make EclipseLink
dependend of that. :-)

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

which is the repository containing JPA API sources relevant for EclipseLink
project.
