Hi all,

First excuse my french in previous meeting invites. Obviously Google can speak english to you and keep sending french invitation ;).

I launch this thread in reaction to the  FUD or inaccuracies about CDI one can find on the web like this post [1]).

As the spec is quite long to read and very theoretic, I think it would be useful to provide an official CDI 1.1 tutorial on cdi-spec site. It could allows us to be sure that people have an official overview of the spec and could be enhanced with use cases we would encounter on the web (stack overflow or other).
I have the feeling such content is already nearly written by people in this ML, so if you have written introduction tutorial to CDI and agree to be reused on official site it would be great and time saving for me.

In the same idea of community federation, I think it could be useful to launch a forum (Google group or other) to allow people to ask informal question about CDI and its eco system. People starting using CDI or casual users won’t use this mailing list and all of them think to use site like Stack Overflow. It would also a good mean to enhance our FAQ.

What do you think ?
