I'd like to second that request.

I'd also like to propose replacing the inactive portion of the members of the
apparently dormant EGs on JSR 277 by people who seem to care about the JSRs in
question, namely:

David Bock
Stuart Halloway
Doug Lea
Ted Neward
Samuel Pullara
Apache Software Foundation
Ironflare AB
SAS Institute Inc.

as they have not managed to post a single message to the expert group's mailing
list since last May (in words: 8 months), so I think they can be safely gc-ed. 

I am sure the spec lead could easily find interested experts with a more active
interest in the subject, for example among the readership of this mailing list.
