Looks like jar-275 is going to die on us (sigh). Forwarded from geoapi email list...
> Hello all
> JSR-275 has been withdrawn more than one year ago, and we don't know yet if a
> new JSR would be attempted (the ex-JSR-275 leader is still investigating
> possibilities). The http://www.unitsofmeasurement.org/ project has been created
> one year ago as a replacement, and is now implemented by 3 independent products
> (including one commercial). In order to keep the "javax" space clean, Oracle is
> investigating the possibilities to remove dead projects like JSR-275 from Maven
> repositories. We don't know yet if JSR-275 would be removed from Maven Central,
> since Maven maintainer are reluctant to removing anything from that repository.
> Nevertheless we copied JSR-275 artifacts to http://maven.geotoolkit.org/ for safety.
> Giving all the above, we have to move away from JSR-275 and I have been told
> that org.unitsofmeasurement is the best target. If there is no objection, I plan
> to perform the switch next weekend on GeoAPI trunk. This change would be part of
> GeoAPI 3.1 release.
> Note that this change was already announced in GeoAPI 3.0
> So hopefully, users and implementors will not be too surprised...
> For those we can not switch easily to GeoAPI 3.1, The Geotoolkit.org (http://Geotoolkit.org) project
> will continue to provide GeoAPI 3.0.0 implementations (together with GeoAPI 3.1
> implementations) for a while.
> The release date and the exact content of GeoAPI 3.1 is not yet determined. The
> roadmap will depend on feedback on this mailing list, feedback at OGC meetings,
> and available resources.
