      Description

      I think this is a redundant and dangerous distinction. It catches out casual and expert readers, e.g. 1.1.3 says "the Spec Lead must continue to offer..." when it means Spec Lead Member. It's inconsistent with having only Maintenance Lead (where is Maintenance Lead Member?) and Expert (where is Expert Member?).

      Bottom line, I think there should only be "Spec Lead", and it should follow the style of "Expert", i.e. a Member or a Member Representative.

        Related: the definition of Spec Lead explicitly requires the Spec Lead to be a Member, but that's redundant because the Spec Lead is an Expert and an Expert is a Member (or Member Representative).

        Alex, is there a separate issue for this comment? I can't see the option here, but given the right user group I know, JIRA allows linking other issues.

        The definition of Spec Lead seems to have been taken from the JSPA, where the definition of Expert is different (can include non-Members who have signed the IEPA.) We eliminated this category.

        The definition does need to be cleaned up to ensure that it doesn't conflict with the JSPA (see http://java.net/jira/browse/JSR348-92.

        And yes - there's a superficial inconsistency introduced by not having the terms Maintenance Lead Member and Expert Member. (These may not be necessary - it depends on whether or not we need to make the distinction. Only a review of the text will tell.)

        As discussed and agreed at the September f2f meeting:

        We have to make the distinction. Either we do it once in the definition or multiple times within the text.

        The former is preferable.
