Jakarta EE 10 Plan Review - Candidate specifications
Project Board https://github.com/jakartaee/specifications/projects/1
Getting the CDI 4.0 ballot underway and finalizing the creation of Jakarta Config [Wayne]
CDI to be re-created under the IPL (from CPL) to proceed as per track issue https://gitlab.eclipse.org/eclipsefdn/emo-team/emo/-/issues/57#note_176306
What if there was a service release required for CDI 3.0? It would be done by the new project under IPL.
As a result of this process, no history will be lost.
Committers will be required to confirm their ongoing interest to be a committer on the project under IPL
Concern was raised with regards to the “old” project going away. A snapshot could be taken or a new repository created of the repo at creation time for archival purposes.
Ed Bratt (Oracle) objected and requested that a new repository be created.
This will be accomplished by creating a new repository that holds the code as it is today. This request will be made providing the Creation Review ballot is successfully completed
Bean Validation will request re-creation under IPL at some point. Scott to consider when. Input from the committee is to do it soon while application of this process is fresh.
Jakarta Config - re-balloting to finalize the Creation Review, the previous ballot was invalidated
Need the Config project to identify which patent option they prefer: IPL or CPL? Project to decide by noon CET on Thursday, September the 9th.
The project is also considering changes to the Scope statement
With these updates in place the Creation Review can be re-initiated
If a spec project is requesting a ballot for a spec under CPL, they are required to first go to the SC for approval for the exception (simple majority) [EMO to capture as a best practice]
Discussed updates to the tracking spreadsheet for the Jakarta EE 10 Release Reviews and decide if a column to track CIs is needed. Paul to revise the spreadsheet before the next scheduled call.
