Re: [] [Questions for the Steering Committee] Jakarta EE 9 Announcement: A United blog IS NEEDED

I'm just a casual observer on this list, but a big fan of Jakarta. Maybe this is very obvious to those in the know, but I've been asking myself for a while what Amelia is contributing to Jakarta?

Amelia, you ask about the blog, but why don't you write and contribute it? I don't understand what your role in Jakarta is, and it does not become clear from any profile.

Please accept my apologies if this is a silly question.

Contributing to Jakarta EE goes beyond code. 

Let's write a blog release announcement that truly shows a 365 story that is reflective on everyone's efforts.  
An announcement that is most caring & most understanding of the fact that many organizations work ONLY on a few Jakarta EE Specifications, that to compare to Oracle formidable contributions- you must be partnering with Oracle by working on Eclipse GlassFish, etc... 

There is more that meets the eye in Open Source. When we shed light into the things that might not be known, that ought to be known,  we are choosing to become much more responsible and as a result, our ownership as Contributors & Users increases. 
Open Source Contributing is beautiful because it is the ecosystem that allows everyone to play from the people who produce it to the companies that use it.
