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

Hola Edward, 

Thank you for this open follow-up which I welcomed. Your questions are wonderful. 

My name is Amelia, Operations at Tomitribe. 
Tomitribe, thanks to the JCP Community, holds 1 seat on the JCP EC Executive, I have been in that space collaborating on reviews, votes... etc  way before there was the announcement about moving Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation. 
Before Jakarta EE became the re-branding of Java EE under the Eclipse Foundation, it was the JCP body via the executive group, whose job was to protect Java EE. 

 Our seat, that of Tomitribe in the JCP EC,  is only possible by the JCP Community Members, by those voters in the JCP ecosystem who trust either individuals or companies, to stand for what is fair & push for betterment.   Currently there are 20 seats in the JCP EC.  
NOW, there is no perfect member, there is no perfect action, we can always improve. Especially, if we choose to bring others to discuss what currently is & what is not clear in the open. Hence I can answer your questions and you no longer how to wonder who I am & why I care.  

Even in today's ecosystem,  the companies listed as members have chosen to gain access to work in shaping the Jakarta EE Working Group by formally signing contracts and paying fees. Though Tomitribe pays for that access as so does all other companies, we not only fend for the ME-first goals. 

No matter the reason why someone might choose to become a contributor to Jakarta EE, we ought to step up & watch how we contribute and what we could improve (owning the task, if at all possible) given the resources at hand & the results at hand.  

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to tell you a bit more of who I am and why I care Edward,

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.
