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

The whole thread went quite a bit out of focus because the subject was some kind of "Jakarta EE WG blog" which also never existed in any form in the JCP btw, I've been both in the EC and Java EE EGs for a very long time (David was, but indirectly of course Amelia also was in the loop since they're together;-) and I know that neither of them had any blog that was written by "everyone".

The closest was probably "The Aquarium", a blog by Oracle employees, I am sure, Reza knows even better because he was among the authors, but no blog of the JCP EC or the Java EE EG.

I think if there is any sense in either of these other discussions beyond a 1-on-1, then the thread should be better focussed under a new title, otherwise everyone will just be lost also in the archives.

The JCP process is no longer relevant for the Jakarta EE specifications. What I get from Amelia's comments is that she has participated in the Java EE specifications when they were under the JCP, and has an interest in ensuring the Jakarta EE processes are as transactional as possible. To that end she is making some suggestions.

I'm okay. Maybe more was read into this than intended. I see many people here and there are committees and there are budgets, and there are even JCP ECs. Not many projects I also follow have all of this. I get it that Jakarta for some reason needs people to be in JCPs and to set budgets in steering committees.

For the casual observer this is all very mysterious. I thought that Jakarta was not about the JCP, but the JCP is about Jakarta? And people who are not in a steering committee set a budget for the steering committee, or are there multiple steering committees?
