I am bringing this question into the Java EE 8 alias in part due to frustration. While talking to the community about Java EE 8, the question that comes up consistently is JPA. Specifically most people are looking for repeatable annotation support and Date/Time API support. I keep telling people there is an MR in the works to do this based on dated and partial information.
Is that still true? If it is true, when can we expect to see this work happen? What can we do to demonstrate the importance of this work to the right people at Oracle?

Good afternoon. I looked at the Draft #2 for the Java EE 8 spec, and saw that it still looks like there is plans for a JPA 2.2 (EE.6.30 Java Persistence API 2.2 Requirements). Back in late February it was mentioned about a possible Maintenance Release, but since then things have been very quiet among the JPA expert group. July is almost upon us, so I'm bringing this discussion topic back up again if there's going to be any public discourse over the updates (presumably to support capabilities added in Java 8) before we run out of time.
