Thanks a lot for the update. Let us know (especially Anatole) how the JCP
Membership goes. If you're a genuine freelancer (no other "shareholders",
partners or similar even in a Ltd. company for example[?]) you most
certainly qualify as Individual JCP Member and should also do so under the
new regime coming up soon also known as "JCP.next" (if you have any
questions or issues regarding those forms, give me a shout, I already
helped others where I could like Raj/JUGChennai or Markus Eisele when they
In fact, you'd better qualify as Individual Member than some who represent
LJC right now, as they have "too many hats" and commercial interests to be
acceptable as Individual Members soon[?] If you think about adopting
Lambdas, you sure can do that, and Adopt-OpenJCK may be a good place. At
least once the JCP Membership is through, or (see the Hangout) before that,
please speak to Anatole about contributions to the JSR.
