+2009-April Status Report for the Apache OpenJPA Project
+OpenJPA is (still) busy implementing the latest JPA 2.0 JSR-317, which is in
+Proposed Final Draft status. The latest draft was issued 13-March-2009 and
+contains several very large changes that will keep the project busy for
+another few months.
+OpenJPA has a Field Of Use problem with the draft JPA 2.0 specification
+license.  The license contains language restricting distribution of the early
+implementation of JSR-317. The way we read this is that OpenJPA will be
+unable to offer an early release of OpenJPA that supports JPA 2.0 until
+and unless 2.(iii) is amended to remove the clause "is made available for
+testing and evaluation purposes only". 
+This issue was raised with Geir Magnusson, Apache VP, JCP on February 3, 2009,
+and is still unresolved.
+<jsr-317 draft>
+2. Distribute implementations of the Specification to third parties for 
+their testing and evaluation use, provided that any such implementation:
+(i) does not modify, subset, superset or otherwise extend the Licensor 
+Name Space, or include any public or protected packages, classes, Java 
+interfaces, fields or methods within the Licensor Name Space other than 
+those required/authorized by the Specification or Specifications being 
+(ii)is clearly and prominently marked with the word "UNTESTED" or 
+"EARLY ACCESS" or "INCOMPATIBLE" or "UNSTABLE" or "BETA" in any list of 
+available builds and in proximity to every link initiating its download, 
+where the list or link is under Licensee's control; and
+(iii)includes the following notice:
+"This is an implementation of an early-draft specification developed under 
+the Java Community Process (JCP) and is made available for testing and 
+evaluation purposes only. The code is not compatible with any specification 
+of the JCP."
+</jsr-317 draft>
+OpenJPA voted to offer Milosz Tylenda to committer status, and he accepted.
+Mailing lists continue to be very active, with an average of almost 400
+messages per month on the dev alias and approximately 250 messages per
+month on the users alias.
+OpenJPA continues to experience a modest increase in email subscriptions and
+activity. There are over 150 subscribers to dev and over 225 to users.
+The community is working well together. Questions from the community
+are answered promptly, often resulting in a JIRA being filed. 
+The PMC continues to track contributors with an eye toward making them
+committers, and committers PMC members. 
+Release 1.2.1 is a bug-fix release for the JPA 1.0 code line.
