Re: [jakartaee-platform-dev] Request for Release Owners for Jakarta EE 9

Broadening this conversation to the community alias for greater visibility. Again, it is understandable that many vendor decision makers were busy with EclipseCon.

However, at least a brief status update would be helpful. Personally I am still unclear if we actually have a formal plan with multilateral resource commitments yet. After all, the whole point of waiting the last two years for the transfer to happen was that Jakarta EE would become a technology driven and owned by more than just Oracle. This is an important checkpoint for many people whether that objective is now closer to reality. I hope we can all come together at this important juncture for so many people.

 Did this get any responses yet? If it hasn’t gotten any replies yet, I would suggest emailing people who have the requisite knowledge directly. 

 I assume that the person has to be an Eclipse Committer?

As we discussed in the call today, the first step towards a successful Jakarta EE 9 release is to appoint someone to take on the role of Release Owners.

MicroProfile has had success with having two release owners in order to share the workload and as a mechanism to carry on the experience from release to release.

For Jakarta EE 9, it would be great to have a release owner team with experience from a MicroProfile release and maybe also mixed with someone that participated in the Java EE 8 Platform Expert Group? Just a thought?

I am expecting a lot of volunteers here, so please be quick to sign up by replying to this mail :)
