[jakartaee-platform-dev] Next up... TCK and Comptible Impl Updates!

We are very close to having a workable version of the Jakarta EE 9 Platform and Web Profile APIs.  Just waiting on Jakarta Faces...  They're working on it...  :-)

The next item on our TODO list is the updating of the TCKs -- both the individual TCKs as well as the Platform TCK.  Our goal for completing this activity was next Friday, March 13.  That does not look feasible at this point.  But, I would like to get a reading on where we are at with this portion of the exercise.

I created a new column in our Project Board for TCK Updated.  Based on the Checklist in each of the Issues, I moved three Projects to that status.  I'm guessing there are more Projects that could be moved.  If you have updated your TCK, please update your Checklist and move the Issue to the TCK Updated column.  As the Platform TCK team starts pulling in the various TCKs for the Jakarta EE 9 TCK, then at least they'll know the expected content.

Another critical piece for the end result is to have an updated Compatible Implementation.  At this point, I didn't create a separate column for that state.  My take is that if a Project has the API, TCK, and CI ready, then they should be prepping for the "final" release and the Issue should be moved to the Pre-Release Review Preparation column and the corresponding PRs should be created and reviewed.

I should also point out that many of the Projects are prepping their Specifications for Jakarta EE 9.  Although these updates Specifications (based on the original source) is not a firm requirement for Jakarta EE 9, I am in full support of completing this activity.  I think it will provide an excellent base as we move beyond Jakarta EE 9.  Thanks for taking the initiative to get these Specifications in proper "Jakarta" shape!

Thanks for your help in developing Jakarta EE 9!  We're making great progress!
