Dear All,

This may only have gone to EC Members so far, but it's not a secret and should also be on the JCP or pages soon. If you feel anybody in this or another EG/JSR deserves to be nominated, please feel free to do so.

I leave the "Member" category up to anybody's judgement, the other 3 despite Victor having won this in the past, look like JSR 354 should play a role. In the Spec Lead category, given it passed Renewal and is on a good pace probably also the "Most significant" category, and Raj/JUG Chennai clearly deserve to be nominated in the new Adopt-a-JSR category;-)

Descriptions of the award categories for this year:

JCP Member/Participant Of The Year - This award recognizes the  
corporate or individual member (either Member or Participant) who has  
made the most significant positive impact on the community in the past  
year. Leadership, investment in the community, and innovation are some  
of the qualities that EC Members look for in voting for this award.

Outstanding Spec Lead - The role of Spec Lead is not an easy one, and  
the person who takes that responsibility must be, among other things,  
technically savvy, able to build consensus in spite of diverse  
corporate goals, and focused on efficiency and execution. This award  
recognizes the person who has brought together these qualities the  
best in the past year, in leading a JSR for the Java community (Java  
SE, Java EE or Java ME).

Most Significant JSR - Specification development is key to the success  
of the JCP program and helps ensure we remain a fresh and vibrant  
community. This award recognizes the Spec Lead and Expert Group that  
have contributed (either in progress or final) the most significant  
JSR for the Java community (Java SE, Java EE or Java ME) in the past  

*New Category* Outstanding Adopt-a-JSR Participant - This award  
recognizes the Java User Group (JUG) that has made the most exemplary  
contribution through the Adopt-a-JSR program in the past year. The  
London Java Community and SouJava initiated, and are thereby  
implicitly recognized, in this effort for JUGs around the world to  
become more involved in the work of JSRs. Innovation, community  
engagement and technical impact are some of the characteristics that  
EC members look for in voting for this award.
