 Description  « Hide

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.)
