Dear All,

I had an interesting conversation with Apache DeltaSpike project lead Mark Strubert (also EG Member, at least CDI as far as he told me) in Vienna last night.
He pointed to an odd aspect of JSR 356, see the proposal page (link TCK License) 

The TCK license is only available for a fee of 35k US$, that I agree with Mark is an extremely hefty fee for every Open Source initiative or SME, the latter I represent as Individual Member. I am aware, there isn't any more Individual Member in SE/EE at least until the merge is complete, but wanted to ask especially the JUGs and other SE/EE EC members if they're aware of it, and how they feel about that? I am too little of a lawyer to tell, if it violates or complies with JCP 2.8 recommendations and guidelines, but that beside the SE/EE EC I also wanted to share with all JSR 355 EG Members, too

Kind Regards,
