Re: [microprofile-wg] [BALLOT] Replace MicroProfile Compatibility Logo with compatible implementations web page. VOTE by Friday, November 12th
According to the current 2022 Program
Plan draft strengthen the MicroProfile brand is a goal and a
MicroProfile Compatibility Logo could support that.

This topic looks like a vendors
decision only, to help promote compatible implementation. But on
the other side at least the decision makers could benefit from the
badge "on the Box" to choose an implementation.

damaging the brand - this is not for free and the EF could manage
that on behalf of the MPWG.

RESOLVED, the Steering Committee confirms that the MicroProfile
working group will operate without a MicroProfile compatibility
program and will not develop and utilize a Compatibility logo
for use by compatible implementations of MicroProfile, and
instead will allow any implementation that can make bonafide
claims of compatibility in accordance with the Eclipse
Foundation Specification Process to be listed and linked to as a
compatible implementation on its webpage.
