|Re: [jakartaee-platform-dev] Fair rules for "optional" TCKcompliance tests|
Remove from the platform or archive entirely?
It seems neither the General EFSP nor the Jakarta EE Extension to it go into great Detail about platforms or Platform Inclusion (or Exclusion) like the JCP does: https://jcp.org/en/procedures/jcp2#188.8.131.52
The EFSP has just one brief sentence:
A Specification Committee may, at its discretion, elect to label one or more Profiles as a “Platform”.
However based on "6.1.3. Optional Jakarta Technologies" EE 10 may decide to mark such feature B "proposed optional", and only EE 12 could officially remove it. That wording wasn’t in the JCP document either but was inherited from Java EE.
For an optional spec to be included there should be commitment from at least one sponsor to provide a compatible implementation. If no one is able to do that, the spec should be removed. In your example, EE 10 should remove B.
