Recommended Areas for Providing Feedback
Feature requests - you can file RFEs in JIRA. It would be the best if such an RFE contains a strawman of the proposal and the reason(s) on why it is a useful feature.
Go over the open (and closed, but not fixed) JIRAs and add comments (and votes) on what you think is very useful, or is very dangerous if added, and why.
Review the spec for bad or confusing descriptions or discrepancies, or unnecessary duplications in the specification. File bugs in JIRA (small/similar items can be combined).
Review the spec documents (remember - there are 2 of them) for typos (and file a JIRA
bug if there are any).
Test the RI for old and new features - submit patches to the developer tests. Old (3.0 and earlier) validation was done via verifier so you need to install the verifier and test 'asadmin deploy' with verifier enabled, not to start filing too many validation issues.
