I give props to Manfred Riem for being such a diligent reader of the JSF 2.0 spec.
At JavaOne 2006, Dennis
Byrne shared with me an intimate fact that I'll now share with you:
his Christmas 2005 wishlist included "a bound printout of the JSF 1.2
spec". He got his wish and went on to become a star committer to the
MyFaces project. Dennis certainly gets the "most touching reading of
the JSF spec" award. However, the award for "most detailed reading of
the JSF spec" clearly goes to Manfred Riem, creator of the
href="http://www.manorrock.com/products/jsf/">Manor 'n Rock JSF
Components . Mr. Riem read the spec with a fine toothed comb and
filed 50 issues in the issue tracker ! Thanks Manfred. I
owe it to you to fix every one.
