Actually, there are four parts to a JCP project: the spec itself, the  
API, the RI, and the TCK. The spec is under JCP rules, the API is in  
Apache, as is the TCK. The RI is being developed as a separate open  
source project (JPOX).

I'm not the expert on what jar files should be blocked, but I know  
that we have permission from Sun to distribute JDO under Apache  
license. So there should not be any issues there.

Good. The "official" package prefix org.apache.jdo is actually  
shorter than the project name org.apache.incubator.jdo or  
org.apache.db.jdo. So we'll plan to use group id org.apache.jdo. And  
it sounds like as long as we include SNAPSHOT in the artifact id we  
should be able to publish on the apache web site (not the ibiblio  
site until official approval).
