Re: [jakarta.ee-steering] [jakarta.ee-spec] Verifying that there is a zero
cost way for committers to participate in specification projects Sent
Perhaps there's confusion over being
a Committer on a spec project vs. being on the Spec Committee itself?

allow for companies under $1M in revenue and 10 employees to join the working
group as Participant Members for $0, so that would be one way. I just want
to verify that a large company can choose to sponsor developers that can
contribute to spec projects.
I can't speak
for the EF, but there better be a zero cost option for Committers. How
else would Markus be participating? And, Mark Struberg? Those
are two key committers that are independent and not paying anything. I'm
sure there are others. I thought that was one of our key goals was
to provide zero-cost participation. Working Group members will have
to pay something, but not regular committers. I sure hope my recollection
is right on this...
