Whe have queued the rename as the first milestone after the graduation 
(also included this in our roadmap).

We are currently working on a release containing the QA harness, and 
using the QA harness produced some bugs that are currently worked on by 
two committers Peter Firmstone and Patricia Shanahan. IIRC the delayed 
rename was specifically requested in order to allow a merge of work 
currently in a branch and/or personal workspace.

The rename will disrupt the trunk for some time, and make merging 
outstanding branches complicated.

An overly cautious response from my side. The consensus was that we 
would rename com.sun.jini to org.apache.river.impl. And on first reading 
it looked like a rename from com.sun.jini to net.jini was announced. It 
wasn't. Apologies.
