      Description

      Non-corporate members often complain that the JSPA is intimidating, and that signing it is a barrier to their full participation in the JCP.

      Refactor the JSPA into two documents to make it simpler and less intimidating for individuals:

      • A simple membership agreement for those who want voting privileges and the right to serve on Expert Groups but who will not serve as Spec Leads.
      • A complete agreement that spells out the Spec Lead's licensing obligations.

      NOTE: unless we eliminate Section 6: Special Patent Considerations for individuals, the resulting document would not be significantly simpler.

      NOTE: we also need a more lightweight Terms of Use agreement for casual participants who do not sign the JSPA. See http://java.net/jira/browse/JSR358-24
