> - Are you using a public mailing list for the JSR--using the observer alias provided by the JCP No. > - Are you using a public mailing list for the JSR--using other means than provided by the JCP (if so, is this read-only or read/write?) We have two mailing lists that anyone can subscribe to (read/write): firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com > - Are you hosting a spec lead blog with frequent updates on activity in the JSR Not until recently: http://blogs.sun.com/alanb/entry/jsr_203_nio2_update > - Are you providing accurate, public schedule for the JSR on jcp.org or elsewhere Yes, the project page (http://openjdk.java.net/projects/nio) has a "Status" section that I keep up to date on the current status/plans. > - Are you using the JCP Community Update page for your JSR on jcp.org No > - Are you hosting development of the spec, RI, or TCK on a collaboration website such as java.net or sourceforge All development is being done here: http://openjdk.java.net/projects/nio The project page has links to the latest javadoc, source code, binaries and other resources. > - Are you making regular (~ monthly) public drafts available in between the formal JCP stages (Early Draft Review, Public Review, Proposed Final Draft, etc) Yes, every 4-6 weeks. Also, jdk7 early access downloads. > - Are you using lightweight technologies like Twitter for quick update messages and allow broad following of the JSR No. > - Are you releasing a public list of the names of the individual participant members on the expert group http://openjdk.java.net/projects/nio/acknowledgements.html > - Are you making all JSR feedback accessible to the expert group Yes, all feedback to jsr203-comments has been forwarded to the EG. All feedback to nio-dev or nio-discuss is accessible to anyone. > - Are you using public issue-tracking No. > - Are you using discussion forums or Wikis No. > - Are you utilizing open-source development processes for the RI or TCK For RI (not TCK because this API is planned to be a component of Java SE 7 and thus the TCK development is part of JCK7). > - Are you doing anything else (speaking at conferences, etc)? JavaOne, Google Talks, and others have presented the API at other conferences (Devoxx, ApacheCon, ...).
