Currently there are still a lot of open JPA issues in the spec JIRA, but no
new version of JPA is planned yet. If I'm not mistaken Oracle indicated
earlier that it's more of a resource question than anything else.

If that's indeed the case, I wonder if it wouldn't be an option to ask eg
Red Hat to take up a bunch of the work. They clearly have much experience
with JPA via Hibernate. An other option is perhaps asking the ObjectDB guys.

In such setup the spec could still be officially Oracle led, but Oracle
could be more in an arbitrating role instead of being responsible for the
bulk of the work.

Just wondering if such setup has been considered.

Kind regards,
