Dear 277 and 294 experts,

This is to announce that Alex Buckley and Stanley Ho will be co-spec 
leads for JSR 277 as soon as the JCP PMO processes the change.

To ensure that all experts can follow both the development and 
deployment aspects of the Java Module System, the plan is for *all* Java 
modularity discussions to occur in the 277 EG from now on.

The development aspects of modularity are specified in the Java Language 
Specification and Java Virtual Machine Specification regardless of which 
EG they are discussed in.

The effects of this plan are most keenly felt by the two members of the 
294 EG who are not already on the 277 EG. The members in question, 
Eugene Vigdorchik and Matthew Flatt, have kindly agreed to join the 277 
observer list [1].

We would like to invite members of the 294 observer list [2] to 
subscribe to the 277 observer list too.

Also, the jsr-277-comments at alias is available for anyone to send 
private comments to the 277 spec leads at any time. We try to respond 
individually to such comments. Every JSR has a comments alias but their 
existence is not well known, so hopefully the use of 
jsr-277-comments at will grow following this message.

Stanley and Alex
