Re: [jakartaee-platform-dev] Issue with a quick Jakarta EE 9 name change only release

Right and Alasdair pointed out it does not make much sense to have an unsupported spec release. The notion is really more of how to work through the discontinuity that the Jakarta 9 release will bring about from the perspective of implementing new features and the tooling around this.

Working through the name and resource handling in a given server might not be a huge effort, but getting the associated TCKs worked through and passing is most likely going to add a significant amount of time to even a simple name change only release.
