So really, who cares about CJAN. The spec that goes defacto is the one

steps in at some point and tries to propose a JSR which wouldn't
surprise me at all.
It's such an undertaking that it might be good to have a JSR around it but
that could take so long :(.
Yes, an by that time, I doubt a JSR would be of value because there
Nothing stop you from do first - and document in a JSR later.
Another option is to start a JSR now, as the Apache implementation matures, in order to get the standardization process started and involve interested parties.
Jason you don't need to wait for Sun in order to start a JSR on that topic: Maven defined this area and one use case for such a repository, ie dependency management for building a project.
The JCP is open and Apache could propose a JSR based on what you have today.
