In order to solve issue [121-JarOrdering], EG member Alexander
Smirnov from Exadel suggested we research the current practice of how
JSF extension points are used. I took his idea and decided to create a
wiki page to collect feedback from the community. Please help us fill
out the table at <http://wiki.java.net/bin/view/Projects/JsfExtensionSurvey>.
If you've ever written a JSF extension, or you use one, see if it's in
the table, and if not, please add it.
The EG will look at the table some time after next Friday, 24 October
2008, and use it to validate our design to fix issue 121.

neutrality. Consider your favored candidates stance on net neutrality
when deciding for whom to cast your (verified) vote.
