  +Jason Hunter, the previous Expert Committee representative for the ASF,
  +was recently quoted in depth in a 
  +<a href="http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-01-2003/jw-0131-jcp.html">JavaWorld

  +article about the JCP</a>. As you <a href="jspa-position.html">may or may not</a>

  +know, the Apache Software Foundation has been a driving force in
  +changing the JCP business model to accept open source practices. Please
  +read the entire article, but of the many great quotes that Jason
  +provided, this one stands out quite a bit because it reflects strongly
  +on one of Jakarta's most active projects:
  +</p>
  +                                                <p>
  +Chiefly, as a result of the open source community's increased
  +involvement, those major JCP executive committee players are starting to
  +see a need to mind the broader Java community's interests as well. "The
  +issue now, with open source and community focus," notes Apache's Hunter,
  +"is increasingly on JSR management."
  +</p>
  +                                                <p>
  +Consider the case of JSR 154, the Java Servlet Specification. "According
  +to the JCP rules, the spec lead makes the decisions, and the expert
  +group members are there to advise," says Hunter. "In JSR 154, there has
  +been a consistent pattern of expert opinion going one way and the spec
  +lead, a newly appointed Sun representative, going exactly the opposite.
  +That's okay once in a while, but how do you build a community where the
  +majority of the expert group, people who have been there for years and
  +are truly the world experts [on servlets], are being second-guessed
  +without explanation?"
  +</p>
  +                                                <p>
  +When the servlet spec comes up for the executive committee's vote, will
  +Apache's representative vote to approve it? Don't hold your breath,
  +advises Hunter. "Apache won't support a technology that was created
  +without community support."
