Patrick provided an update on JSR 358, summarizing recent developments for the new members (see the presentation for details). He reported that he had reached agreement with Oracle Legal on the content of the new Partner Membership Agreement so that we could now move forward with internal approval, and then to Public Review.
Members discussed the 2015 meeting schedule in the light of a change in the date of JavaOne. They agreed to move the previously-proposed September face-to-face meeting to the Thursday and Friday before JavaOne (22-23 October). Patrick suggested that we should adjust the dates of the September, November, and December meetings in order to maintain an approximately monthly spacing between meetings (see the PMO presentation for details). Nobody expressed concern about making these changes but we agreed to follow up by email before making a final decision. We then discussed possible locations for our mid-year face-to-face meeting in Europe. Several members expressed a preference for meeting adjacent to Devoxx UK because of the number of Java User Group leaders and members who would be present there, and also because of the planned Adopt-a-JSR summit to be held during the event. We agreed to also continue this discussion via email.
The meeting then adjourned and re-formed for the second, public hour.
