We started this conference call as a way to coordinate the JDO expert  
group Technology Compatibility Kit work, and figured that we should  
invite the community to participate. The calls are advertised on both  
the JDO expert group alias and on the jdo-dev AT alias.  
The intent is to be inclusive.

Thanks for your support as we continue to grow and learn the Apache Way.
