I give! :-)
Maybe I'm just overthinking it. Let's just leave it as is and
we can discuss later (if necessary).

Re: [jakartaee-platform-dev] Creation of javaee-api.jar and javaee-web-api.jar
I'm not sure what problem would be solved
by having them in the same repo. They're in the same Eclipse project,
which controls most of the permissions. There are so many things
that need to be kept in sync that I don't think we would want them all
in one repo, unless you believe in the Google approach where there is only
one repo and everything is in it.

Thanks. So, I guess our Platform PRs for the Release Review will
need to be populated from multiple sources. I think that's fine for
Jakarta EE 8, but I wonder if this API processing should just be moved
to the Spec repo. Easier to keep everything in sync down the road. Thanks for the explanation on the current state.
I moved the creation of these jar files to the jakartaee-apirepo.
I just recently created Jenkins
jobs to build and release them.
It combines the API jar files from the individual APIs, which is why that
project needs to be updated with the new versions of the component API
jar files mas part of the release process.

of the javaee-api.jar and javaee-web-api.jar. I'm assuming these
were previously created by just combining the contents of the various Java
EE component features. But, I'm not clear on the process for Jakarta
EE 8. Can anybody from Oracle shed some light on this process and
what needs to be done for Jakarta EE 8?
