Refactor the JSPA
-----------------

                 Key: JSR358-36
                 URL: http://java.net/jira/browse/JSR358-36
             Project: jsr358
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Intellectual Property
            Reporter: pcurran


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]
