Eclipse Project for JAX-RS

Basics
This proposal is in the Project Proposal Phase (as defined in the Eclipse Development Process) and is written to declare its intent and scope. We solicit additional participation and input from the community. Please login and add your feedback in the comments section.
Background: 

This project is created as part of the process of transitioning Oracle Java EE 8 and GlassFish technologies to the Eclipse Foundation as described in The Eclipse Enterprise for Java Project Top Level Project Charter (https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/ee4j/charter).

Scope: 

Eclipse Project for JAX-RS provides the API and TCK for Java API for RESTful Web Services (JAX-RS), starting from the specification defined by JSR-370.

An implementation for JAX-RS is part of the proposal for Eclipse Jersey.

Description: 

JAX-RS: Java API for RESTful Web Services (JAX-RS) is a Java programming language API spec that provides support in creating web services according to the Representational State Transfer (REST) architectural pattern.

Why Here?: 

The top level EE4J project was created consistent with the direction described in The Eclipse Enterprise for Java Project Top Level Project Charter (https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/ee4j/charter).   This project is created under the top level EE4J project as one of Oracle Java EE 8 and GlassFish technologies being transitioned to the Eclipse Foundation.

I've been working on an implementation of the Jax Rs 2.1 specifications that I would like to publish as an open source project. Any idea when the TCK will be open sourced?

The starting point should be JSR 370 (JAX-RS 2.1) but not JSR 339 (JAX-RS 2.0), otherwise we would end up with a lot of confusion in the community as JAX-RS 2.1 is publicly available since months.

Correctf and done.  Both for this API proposal as well as the Jersey RI proposal.  Thanks!
