Minutes

Special Election results

Patrick reported the Special Election results (see the PMO presentation) and welcomed the new members.

Personnel changes and new member introductions

Patrick reported that there were no other personnel changes. The four new members Goldman Sachs (John Weir,) London Java Community (Ben Evans,) SouJava (Bruno Souza,) and Alex Terrazas introduced themselves.

EC stats

Patrick presented the usual EC stats and issued the usual reminder that all EC members are expected to vote on all JSRs. He reminded EC members how to log in for ballots, and suggested that anyone who had problems voting on jcp.org should contact the PMO by email and request that a vote be cast on their behalf.

EC meeting attendance

Patrick reported that the online EC attendance chart has been updated, and reminded members that this is publicly visible, and that attendance at meetings is compulsory. He pointed out that JCP.next will probably introduce penalties for EC members who miss meetings. He also reported that Oracle and the PMO are contacting non-participating members to discuss whether they wish to continue to be involved in the JCP.

Inactive JSRs

Heather Vancura provided an update on Inactive JSRs. Ben Evans asked the PMO to circulate a list of JSRs that are candidates for additional action, since the London Java Community may want to "adopt" a JSR and encourage participation. Heather agreed to do so. John Weir asked whether we know why JSRs become inactive. Heather responded that we don't always get feedback on this, but that the typical reasons are lack of time, lack of resources, or a change in industry direction/focus. Alex Terazzas asked whether the PMO asks Spec Leads for dates and then tracks the JSRs' progress. Heather responded that Spec Leads are seldom willing to provide us with detailed schedules.

The remainder of this discussion addressed JCP.next matters, and is recorded in the minutes for that portion of the meeting.

EC meeting schedule update

Patrick thanked Goldman Sachs for volunteering to host our September f2f meeting. He also reported that it would be necessary to change the date of the August teleconference to align with the JSR 348 schedule. (See the PMO presentation for details.)

JSR 348 Expert Group business

For the remainder of this meeting the EC was in session as the Expert Group for JSR 348. See the presentation materials and meeting minutes for details.
