it is obvious Apache has the notion of company contributions.
Companies authorize individuals where their employment agreement might be in
conflict with a CLA, and companies can provide a Software Grant in the case
where the existing IP is owned by the company.  This applies equally to IBM,
Sun, BEA, Gluecode, DevTech, or JBoss.
This is an accurate legal description but not really an issue to me. 
Clarifying the IP flow of company - committer - ASF would suggest that 
we would be ok to say Tomcat by Apache and lead contributor JBoss via 
Remy.

None of this is new.  It has been discussed at length, and is fairly well
established.  This is a legal distinction having nothing to do with the
promotional wording of the Jolt awards.
Big +1 to Jolt needing a correction.
I don't quite know how to feel JBoss's desire to promote their 
contributions to the ASF.  I'm guessing IBM, Sun, and BEA contribute 
more to the ASF than JBoss does, but these larger contributions come 
from companies that do not have a strategic goal of marketing themselves 
as open source leaders.

I think one of the great things about the ASF is that it does allow 
commercial involvement in their projects.  I'd love us to figure out how 
we ARE comfortable thanking JBoss, IBM, etc.. rather than only reacting 
when we feel a line is crossed.

Noel and I also have access.  Not sure who else does (within Jakarta).

Finally, Jakarta did have forums at one time but I don't think they were heavily

IMO this is the best point.  Open source projects get to try dozens of 
different communication patterns (IM, IRC, NNTP, personal email, Forums, 
Wikis, mailing lists, phone calls, CVS, bugzilla, etc...).

Mailing lists have emerged as the most effective means for open source 
development.

Key ASF individuals are joining these discussions, on weblogs and 
various discussion forums. But the ASF as a whole is silent.
In lieu of forming a statement for the ASF as a whole, what about 
organizing/encouraging/guiding people who want to participate?  Maybe 
specific resources that should be targetted, such as where the most 
active and/or productive discussions are taking place.

Is it my mailer that's making a mess here, or is something else going

Ted but was written by someone else (in this case me, in the previous

The two messages from Ted Husted that concern you contain:

  Received: from PC15 (roc-24-93-14-71.rochester.rr.com [24.93.14.71])

which appears to match other messages from Ted.  My guess is that Ted
started to compose a reply and accidentally sent it before doing any edits.
I think the confusing message (for me at least) was at 11:17 a.m. EST 
with message-id [EMAIL PROTECTED]

It appears from Ted Husted, but it is a replying and criticizing text 
apparently from Ted Husted.  The text even says, Ted, you seem to be.. 
which is very confusing if the message was *from* Ted.

Maybe Ted is playing Devil's advocate with himself?

Now information

tells me too little. Can someone explain: does it support any type of 
transactions or could it easily be augmented to?

Hope this is not too much OT and thanks in advance,
I think JCS is getting extra attention from Hibernate, with most docs on 
this page:

http://www.hibernate.org/61.html

JCS is the primary (sole) caching system provided for 2.0. 
Unfortunately the Hibernate 2.1 release that is due out soon has a 
pluggable caching architecture and is moving away from JCS as the 
default, so this publicity opportunity may slip away soon.
