Hi Marek

Seeing you replying in other threads makes me feel JAX-RS 2.1 has a very
bright future :-)

So what do you think about cutting out the current early draft release
for it to make it to Central ?
As I said, at this stage it would not be about meeting certain spec
deadlines but rather supporting
the implementation projects to do the early adoption and releases. Not
only for CXF.

By the way I should have a write access to a JAX-RS git repo. So if it
can help I can do the release
(I'd only need some guidance on how to reflect the early draft status in
the artifact name||, ex, 2.1-early-draft-m1, etc).
Think about it please if it can work.

Thanks, Sergey
