Re: [] Plan for Batch Spec (JSR 352) in Jakarta EE

I asked another IBM led JSR, Portlet which has not been part of the Java EE Umbrella, but builds on top, what they intend to do about Jakarta EE.
So far there is no concrete plan or code moved. Nor has Batch been transferred either. It was never in the GitHub organizartion for Java EE 8, only a Hands-on-Lab for the ex JavaOne it seems:

Since Pivotal being an interested party in Jakarta EE has both inspired and implemented most of the Batch JSR, it is probably up to those vendors.
Not sure, where the codebase even went after was shut down?`
Maybe here: but it looks rather inactive so far. 

I guess IBM as Maintenance Lead might have to decide if it wants to donate that codebase to Jakarta EE or not.

Since the Batch Spec (JSR 352) was first introduced in Java EE 7, it has been well received by the community and greatly helped standardize modern batch processing applications.  There was plan to include a next release of batch spec into Java EE 8, but unfortunately was left out.  Now under the new Jakarta EE umbrella, what is the plan for batch spec?

I would love to see continued support for batch spec in Jakarta EE, as well as further evolution of the spec to add more features.  Some important features (e.g., job definition inheritance, etc) had to be deferred to at the last minute of batch spec 1.0.  So it would be nice to carry forward these deferred tasks.

What do you think about in Jakarta EE?  I appreciate your thoughts and comments.

Thank you,
