Thanks. I'd seen a general reference to fetch issues on the 2.1
proposal, but given the lack of discussion and the brief mention of it I
was concerned it'd get missed. I didn't know you were working to a
specific agenda, though it certainly makes sense to do so. Is there any
formal agenda that's accessible somewhere or is it just a general
consensus of what you're thinking of looking into next?

Thanks for the reassurance that it'll get looked at. I'll keep an eye
out. I'll probably need to start monitoring EclipseLink's commits list
too so I can try prototypes of JPA 2.1 features out. BTW it also turns
out fetch groups did come up briefly in December 2011 as spin-off of
another thread. I must've missed it.

Good luck juggling Java EE 7 and all the competing wants and needs.
