I am glad to inform you JSON-B RI and EclipseLink projects have been successfully separated. It was not a union of heart, but more marriage of convenience. Both projects had the same committers. Therefore, JSON-B RI was started in a directory inside EclipseLink project. But when JSON-B RI project started to be more and more mature we started to realize that the idea of hosting it inside EclipseLink project was not so good. These projects have different release cycles and different committers. Currently all JSON-B RI committers are EclipseLink committers, but not vice versa. Also, it can change in future, when more JSONB-RI committers are added.
