Yes, Roger is correct.  I was clearly jet lagged when I wrote out the subject line.

The JSR 310 spec leads have chosen to use alternate infrastructure for their development.  The existence of a corresponding OpenJDK Project will aid in the integration of the JSR into JDK 8.

The intention is to use the project name "ThreeTen".

The extra spec in the subject line is unintentional.
