EC meeting schedule update

Patrick reported the new date for the August teleconference and announced that the September face-to-face meeting in New Jersey would be two full days, in order to allow sufficient time for JSR 348 discussions. He also suggested that the September meeting would provide an opportunity to begin discussion of how to merge the two ECs.

JSR 348 Early Draft Review preparation

Patrick presented an overview of JSR 348 (see presentation.) Members discussed the current state of the document drafts and made suggestions that have since been incorprated into later drafts. Josh Bloch expressed his discontent with the process, arguing that it was simply "reaarranging deckchairs on the Titanic." Other members expressed their satisfaction with the process, and a straw poll showed that the majority agreed we should move forward to Early Draft Review.
