Antoine Sabot-Durand commented on CDI-405:

Reproducing IRC discussion between [~pmuir] (pmuir) and [~antoinesabot-durand] (asd) about this ticket and corresponding PR

<+pmuir> asd: for https://github.com/cdi-spec/cdi/pull/204
<+pmuir> I think the new wording is too verbose and wooly
<+asd> +1. Your input as an english native speaker would be very appreciated here
<+pmuir> I wonder if we can't say something like (i.e. to paraphrase) "The container must provide an implementation of the @RequestScoped, @ApplicationScoped and @SessionScoped annotations defined in [builtin_contexts] representing the standard scopes defined by the Java Servlets specification."
<+pmuir> we would need to reword the second bullet as well, to keep the definitions consistent
<+asd> with that you remove the idea that these context are not restrict to servlet scopes IMO
<+asd> the main idea should be "it's like scope in servlet spec but it could be more"
<+asd> the main issue with this is nowhere in the spec we indicate how a third party spec could extend @RequestScoped...
<+pmuir> that I think we should add to 6.2
<+pmuir> "A context object may be defined for any of the built-in scopes"
<+pmuir> agreed?
<+asd> ok

So the reword should be simplified and a new mention should be put regarding built-in scopes extension.
I'm modifying the PR with this new approach.
