Subject: Re: [sca-bindings] Face-to-face in Burlington - JCA on agenda?

Yes, er, I suppose that would be the only *open* issue. I started 
reading the JCA specification for the first time about two weeks back, 
thinking I should, so as to be prepared for our upcoming F2F. A few 
pages in, I realized I had already encountered a handful of editorial 
issues, such as spelling errors, and sentences that were incomplete or 
didn't quite make sense. I found enough issues that I concluded that it 
was unlikely that anyone else had actually been looking at the JCA 
specification either. And further, if these editorial issues exist, I'm 
sure that there are some substantive issues that I could stop to 
contemplate - if only I were more familiar with JCA. Looking to spend my 
time effectively, I didn't want to poke around if nobody else was 
bothering. That, of course, led to my previous email.

I can, of course, go off and file the issues I did discover - but 
collectively that could be a waste of time to file editorial issues, if 
more substantive issues will replace the text anyway - and it is 
certainly a distraction from other areas of SCA that I would prefer to 
focus on - especially if we're not going to talk about JCA any time 
soon. Thus, circling back to my original question, are we going to talk 
about JCA at the F2F? Are others looking at the JCA binding with an eye 
toward filing substantive issues with the spec? Were there absolutely 
*no* deferred issues from the OSOA discussions that perhaps should be 
raised again?
