You can download and take a look at the draft specification from the JCP site. If you are a JSF user you should do your part by engaging actively. Here are the many ways you can engage (most of this comes directly from the Adopt-a-JSR page I drafted while still at Oracle):
- You can still join the specification itself as an expert or a contributor. You can do that via the JCP page for the specification.
- You can have your JUG officially support the standard through Adopt-a-JSR.
- You can simply join the discussion without any ceremony by subscribing to the JSF specification user alias.
- You can share ideas and feedback, possibly by entering issues in the public issue tracker.
- You can read the public review specification now.
- You can try out the reference implementation now.
- You can write or speak about JSF 2.3 now.
- You can encourage others to participate.
