The role of the Reference Implementation

    Details

      Description

      The JSPA currently conflates two roles for the RI - these should be clarified:

      • A proof-of concept implementation that is used by implementers as an aid to testing and debugging their implementation.
      • The form in which the Spec Lead licenses its implementation for the creation of derivative works.

      Mandate that a binary RI must be released (the former role cannot be fulfilled without a binary.)

        Comment [ There's actually a third role: the proof of concept implementation of the Spec that demonstrates that the Spec is actually implementable. ]
